research, advances in the field of undersea exploration hauntings by ghosts and alien invasions. Quite
a lot for asleepy little Long Island town. And it all started with a Bay.
In 1658, the notorious pirate Captain Bartholomew "Blackheart" Bay purchased this land from a Native
American tribe to hide his vast treasure. He named it Baytown. Then in 1674, in order to avoid notice
from rivals, Captain Bay divided the land into lots among twenty-three members of his crew. The lots
were given names such as Oak Neck, Pine Island and New Baytown. Captain Bay was soon lost at sea,
but his effect on the town was far fromfinished.
1851 saw B.B. Bay looking to create a home for his family and their traveling carnival and he settled

now standing was a nexus of powerful energy. He felt drawn here like a moth to a flame. And once here,
Bay knew this was where his family belonged. He felt it in the air around him. This land was hisdestiny.
B.B. Bay built the family estate here, Bloodworth manor and raised a large family and his son Bradley became Bayville's first mayor in 1919. A member of the Bay family has lived here ever since and they
