The village maintains its own library, post office, volunteer fire department, garbage pick-up and a water department. BAYVILLE is in the Locust Valley School District

Bayville was incorporated in 1919. Historically, Matinecock Indians inhabited the area as earl as the 1500's. Then, in 1658, Daniel Whitehead bought land in the area from two Indians, and by 1674, the area, then known as Oak Neck and Pine Island, was divided into 23 smaller parcels for pasture land. The name Bayville was adopted in 1859 because of water all around and the several safe harbors for cargo-carrying vessels.

Enclosed on three sides by affluent towns and Villages, this North Shore enclave has developed from a summer cottage spot to a year round community. The main thoroughfares of Ludlam Avenue and Bayville Avenue, lead to the towns main shopping district dotted with independent shops frequented by summer visitors and residents alike.Typically, residents traveling to Manhattan by train will drive to Locust Valley or farther stations of Syosset, Glen Cove, Oyster Bay or even Roslyn, where train schedules are more frequent.
