East Williston is a village in Nassau County, New York in the United States. The population was 2,503 at the 2000 census.

The Village of East Williston is in the Town of North Hempstead.

History

Most of the farmland was owned by the Willis Family in the 1800s. However not to be confused with the Willis areas of upstate New York, this area was known as East Williston. The original borders of the area known as East Williston, stretched west towards Queens to Herricks Road; North to I.U. Willets Road; South to the Village of Mineola; and East to Bacon Road in Old Westbury. Thanks to the railroad, East Williston Carriages were quite popular at the time. The popular Long Island route, State Route 25B or Hillside Avenue, used to be called East Williston Avenue, since it connected Queens with East Williston. A small portion of the area was incorporated in 1926 as the Village of East Williston. The East Williston Union Free School District was founded in 1955.
