Agency, E. P. (n.d.). Old Roosevelt Field Contaminated Ground Water. Retrieved from

Excerpt: The Old Roosevelt Field Contaminated Ground Water Area (ORCA) Site is located on the eastern side of Clinton Road approximately 0.6 mile south of the intersection with Old Country Road. That intersection was the northwest corner of Roosevelt Field and its predecessors, which were used for aviation activities from 1911 until May 1951. The original airfield, known as the Hempstead Plains Aerodrome, encompassed 900 to 1,000 acres east of Clinton Road and south of Old Country Road. The U.S. military began using the Hempstead Plains field before the U.S. entered World War I. On September 24, 1918, the Army changed the name of the airfield to Roosevelt Field. In the 1920's, Roosevelt Field was split into two separate airfields. The eastern field was sold in 1936 and became a racetrack, while the western field located at the corner of Clinton and Old Country Roads continued to operate as an aviation center.
