The town's history dates back to 1640, when English settlers first settled in the area. The name "Greenwich" was chosen because it was a well-known holiday resort destination for Londoners, and that many of the original settlers were from Greenwich. During World War II, Greenwich played an important role in providing military equipment to U.S. troops and aiding war production efforts by operating factories that produced machine guns for M1918 Browning Automatic Rifles at Mitchell Field airport; torpedoes at Navy Point (now part of Glenville); bombsights at Grumman Aircraft Engineering Corporation; and fuses for artillery shells made by Western Electric Company (now AT&T) on North Street near Washington Avenue Extension/Upper Washington Road (Route 124).
