The beautiful hamlet of Bohemia is located in the town of Islip. It has a long, rich history dating back to 1855. The original settlers came to the United States from what is now the Czech Republic. Three Slavic immigrant couples were friends and the husbands were street musicians in New York City. One man became ill and was told to move out to the country for the fresh air. The little community began to grow. Many of the newcomers found jobs in oil and fish factories on Fire Island, a few miles offshore. Others brought their cigar making skills from the old country and eventually cigar factories opened. By the late 19th century, there were eight cigar factories. They closed by 1930 when mechanized production did away with hand rolling of cigars. In 1885, the town name was officially changed to Bohemia.
