The history of the Miracle Mile as a shopping destination is many-layered. Northern Boulevard in Manhasset, where it is located, began as a simple trail, where Matinecock and Manhasset Indians hunted and traded. Early settlers with large holdings and farmlands in the 17th and 18th century, tradesmen and merchants in the 19th century, prepared the way for the explosive growth in the 20th century of the prosperous Manhasset we know today. It is not too far-fetched to claim that this area has always attracted the privileged whether they were significant landowners or entrepreneurs.
In , North Hempstead Turnpike what is now Northern Boulevard was a toll road and the main artery connecting all the farmlands and holdings of a succession of Dutch and English settlers.
There were butchers, innkeepers, barbers, doctors, and blacksmiths. There were hotels, restaurants, grocery stores, and saloons. Throughout the 19th century, the area thrived with the bustle of commerce and trade serving the needs of travelers passing through as well as the local community. It is said that actors Fred Astaire, and Leslie Howard, residents of the area at the time, patronized the store.

With the arrival of the railroad in the latter part of the s, the influx of tradesmen from the Valley, and a building boom around the churches, the Town Hall, and the school, Manhasset laid the groundwork for the thriving town it became.
Eventually, by the first decades of the 20th century, business had definitely shifted from the Valley to the Hill and Manhasset became a commuter town. After weathering the Depression and World War II, a more mobile population and increased vehicular congestion both in urban spaces and suburban main streets, gave the impetus for the rapid development of stores and shopping centers in areas adjacent to towns.
Taking their cue from the now famous stretch of Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles called the Miracle Mile because of the way it boomed with interwar commercial development, speculators and town fathers across the country were often quick to celebrate their own example of commercial magic. The store is still there today on land that was originally owned by the Schenck family, early settlers of Manhasset.
