Before you decide on buying a plot of land in Suffolk County, you might be interested in a short history lesson on the area’s past. Very few people know that Suffolk County has been inhabited for over 10,000 years. Before becoming a US state and being divided up into counties, it was controlled by the British and was part of the new east Riding of Yorkshire. Today, Suffolk County has the most productive farmland in all of the state of NY and therefore is largely agricultural.
