The Three Village area is filled with history.
And the Three Village Historical Society wants to show and tell you all about it.
To do so, the organization created the Culper Spy Day festival, designed to showcaseAmerica’s first spy ringthat was used on Long Island to help General George Washington win the American Revolution.
“The spyring provided George Washingtonthe information he needed to turn the tide of the American Revolution,” said a spokeswoman from the Three Village Historical Society.
This year’s event, which is the fifth annual, will be held on Saturday, Sept. 14, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Setauket Village Green and the Three Village Historical Society headquartersat 93 North Country Road.
During the self-guided tour, patrons will experience reenactments, colonial cooking presentations, colonial music, blacksmith demonstrations, and more.
Attendees will tour the Caroline Church and witness a historic ceremony. They’ll also be able to check out Stony Brook University’s collection of hand-written letters from George Washington to the Long Island spies, which will also be on display.
For eating, several food trucks will be stationed at the Historical Society Tavern.
