The village was incorporated in 1910. In 1917, the village absorbed the communities of Barkers Point and Motts Point. It was originally owned by three families, the Sands, Vanderbilts, and Cornwells.

Today, the estate is part of the Sands Point Preserve, notable for a medieval fair run by Medieval Scenarios and Recreations, Ltd., which is held every September.
