Travis Homes For Sale

Travis is one of the most isolated and sparsely populated locales on Staten Island, known at times as Long Neck and New Blazing Star Ferry. It became the site of the United States’ first linoleum factory in the 1860s, leading to its being named Linoleumville; however, in 1930, residents overwhelmingly chose to rename the community after Colonel Jacob Travis, whose family had resided there before the linoleum plant opened. Travis is noted throughout Staten Island for the colorful Independence Day parade held there annually. Many members of the community’s founding families are buried in Sylvan Grove Cemetery, a small, triangle-shaped burial ground near the junction of Victory Boulevard and the West Shore Expressway. Travis is home to the Mid Island Little League, winners of the 1964 Little League World Series.
