It was a horse and carriage that made it possible for a man with vision to assemble Barnes Landing from fourteen different parcels in 1907. That man was William B. Codling, a pioneer real estate developer in Suffolk County at the turn of the century. Beginning in 1952, through the 1960's, his daughter, Helen Codling Halsted, developed what is now Barnes Landing. In 1958, the Barnes Landing Association was formed by the early home owners in the community and they worked with Mrs. Halsted to set aside and preserve the common properties of the Association - for the use and benefit of property owners in Barnes Landing. Barnes Landing is a community of 250 property owners and 220 acres.
