There was no exact reason for William Nicoll of Islipe in England to have bought some 80 square miles of land from the original Secatogue Indian inhabitants at this particular place, but for sure it has certainly paid handsome dividends in the following centuries. Central Islip was named for its location between Islip and East Islip. The former and merged names include Suffolk Station. In the late 19th century, New York City established a mental hospital in Central Islip. The number of patients peaked at 10,000 in 1955 and the institution closed 22 years later. The new Cohalan County Court Complex and Federal Courthouse complex was known as the second largest in the country also opened on a portion of the former Central Islip Psychiatric Center’s 788-acre campus.
