History of Tompkinsville

Tompkinsville's namesake is Daniel D. Tompkins, the United States Vice President back in 1816. Tompkins was behind the construction of a dock on Victory Boulevard that offered service via steam ferry across the bay to Manhattan, the first of its kind establishing passenger service to and from Manhattan. Later, Tompkinsville served as a U.S. Navy Frontier Base.
