The property of Joseph Rodman Drake Park in the Hunts Point area of the Bronx was once the site of a Weckquaesgeek Indian village called Quinnahung, meaning “a long high place” or “the planting neck.” During the Revolutionary War, George Washington’s continental troops passed through this plot in their retreat from Long Island. In the late 17th century, Thomas Hunt (for whom the Hunt’s Point neighborhood is named) acquired this property and built his stone mansion, the Grange.
