The Village of Lindenhurst traces its beginning back to the Indians, when Secatogue and Massapequa tribes roamed the “Lindenhurst” woods in search of food. The area was then called Neguntatogue, which means, “forsaken land.” The Huntington farmers of English origin were the first white people to discover the territory. Lindenhurst began as a subdivision in Lake Villa Township in 1952. The land had been called “Lindenhurst Farm” by a prior owner, Ernst Lehmann, son of the weal- thy Chicago department store merchant who founded Lake Villa. Developer Morton Engle and his brothers bought the property in the late 1940s.
