Village of the Branch

The Village of The Branch is one of three incorporated villages within the township of Smithtown - our other sister villages being Nissequogue and Head of The Harbor. The village is located on the north shore of Long Island and contains a mix of upscale homes, a thriving business district and a historical district Village-Hall-picturewhere residents and visitors alike can step back in time and discover the history of Smithtown and the surrounding communities in unique settings.

The village Board of Trustees, led by Mayor Mark Delaney, strives to maintain a level of personal attention and quality of life. The Board is comprised of village residents with families of their own who simply want to maintain a feeling of community and pass that on to future generations.
