Located at 627 Half Hollow Road, John Rogers House is the the oldest house in Dix Hills. The “saltbox” house was constructed in 1732 in “Federal” style on land acquired by John Rogers in 1706. It is said that John Rogers’ ancestors arrived in America with the Pilgrims on the Mayflower in 1620. John Rogers and some of his family members are buried in the Woolsey Cemetery nearby. The house was called “Five Gates” for the number of gates on the property that led to the grazing areas of the, once, 257-acre farm. Now only on an acre of land, John Rogers House is a designated Town of Huntington historic site and is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
