Peconic was a station stop along the Greenport Branch of the Long Island Rail Road in Peconic, New York. The station was originally built as Hermitage Station on May 1, 1848 (although some sources claim it dates back to 1844) but was later renamed Peconic. In August 1876 a second Peconic Station replaced the former one, which also served as the post office. That station was razed in April 1942 and replaced with a shelter along the platform. The post office moved to the grocery store next door where it remains to this day. When Cutchogue station was closed in June 1962, the two nearest replacements were Mattituck station, which still exists today, and Peconic station, which was discontinued in 1970. It was located between Cutchogue and Southold Stations.[1]
