In 1921, Bennett de Beixedon purchased a 75-acre waterfront property in Southold. He dubbed the property “the Village of Beixedon.”

The Village of Beixedon was never incorporated or recognized by the state as a village, said Southold Historical Society director Geoffrey Fleming. 

“It may have been his intention to establish [Beixedon] as a village,” he said. “But it never was.”
