Elmont is a hamlet in Hempstead close to the Nassau County border which helped provide it with the name of the Gateway to Long Island. Christopher and Thomas Foster purchased land from Dutch settlers in 1650 for raising sheep and cattle. They named the area of land Foster Meadow which was the name of the village until around 1850 when England became in control of the Dutch colony. Now, the community became the home to Protestant and English farmers and their families. In the 19th century, Foster Meadow became home to families of German descent. By the end of World War II, the area began to boom with the development of tract homes.
