Description

In this living history walk you will meet farmer and Revolutionary War Spy Chief Abraham Woodhull, portrayed by historian Beverly Tyler, who leads tour-goers on a walk through the nature sanctuary that was once Woodhull’s farm.

Tour-goers are introduced to the woods, fields, ponds and bays that tell the story of Long Island’s colonization and settlement preceding the Revolution and the creation of the new nation.

After visiting sites that include the Woodhull homestead on Little Bay, The Frank Melville Memorial Park and Sanctuary, Little Bay, the high and low marsh at Conscience Bay, Setauket Grist Mill, Patriot’s Rock, and the Setauket Village Green, Setauket Presbyterian Church graveyard and the Caroline Church of Brookhaven, tour-goers will learn how Benjamin Tallmadge, head of General Washington’s Secret Service, set up an undercover message system, and will see copies of maps and spy letters. This Three Village Historical Society walking tour is designed for students, families, and adults. Tour lasts approximately one and one half hours.
