The village was incorporated in 1900, and Floyd Johnson was president. At the time of incorporation the town had a population of 969.[5] Back in the 1960s a student from East Rockaway High School, named Donald Scaglione, attempted to steal the school’s bell from the bell tower.[citation needed] Unknowingly the bell weighed too much to carry, even for Don, who was one of the football team’s star offensive linemen. The bell was dropped. The Scaglione family was responsible for fixing the bell.
