Calverton is a hamlet and census-designated place (CDP) in Suffolk County, New York, United States. The population was 6,510 at the 2010 census.Most of Calverton is in the Town of Riverhead, while the area south of the Peconic River is a mostly undeveloped smaller portion in the Town of Brookhaven.HistoryCalverton was first referred to as "Baiting Hollow Station" when the Long Island Rail Road arrived in 1844. The station closed in 1958, but the sheltered shed for the station remained standing as of 2007.The area's Native American name was Conungum or Kanungum, meaning "fixed line" or "boundary". In 1868 the Calverton post office opened, named for Bernard J. Calvert. It remained a small farming community specializing in cranberries, which grew in swampy areas along the Peconic River until the Navy purchase.Calverton's history is tied closely to Naval Weapons Industrial Reserve Plant, Calverton. In 1953, the United States Navy purchased 6000acre around Calverton from a local farmer named Harry Edwards, including the mansion of a grandson of F.W. Woolworth's, so that Grumman could test and finish jets. A 10000ft runway was built, and most of Grumman's F-14 Tomcat and E-2C Hawkeye aircraft were to pass through the plant.
