History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

Williston Park was founded in 1926 when of land were purchased by New York City developer William Chatlos. Chatlos was seeking to create an affordable, planned community for New York City residents wishing to move to the suburbs. Later that year, residents of the village voted to break with the residents of East Williston and formally incorporate the village. Williston Park is named for Samuel Willis, a settler who came to the area in the late 17th century. The home of one of Willis's family members stood in the village until the 1950s. The village's current mayor is the Honorable Paul Ehrbar. The Village Board consists of Deputy Mayor Kevin Rynne, Trustee William Carr, Trustee Michael Uttaro, and Trustee Teresa Thomann. All are members of the Representative Party.
