May 29, 2019

Stony Brook, NY – Through the generosity of TFCU, hands-on field trips to WMHO’s Revolutionary War era historic sites were recently made possible for 120 students from Brentwood’s Laurel Park Elementary school.  They enjoyed three special programs, taking part in a Culper Spy Ring reenactment, role-playing 18th Century doctors and much more.

 

  • Medicine: Past, Present and Future: The Thompson House, c. 1709, (Setauket) home to physician and Patriot Samuel Thompson
  • Become a Spy:  Brewster House, c. 1665, (Setauket) home to Joseph Brewster, cousin of Caleb Brewster, member of the Culper Spy Ring.
  • Dusty ProgramStony Brook Grist Mill, c. 1751,  (Stony Brook) Students join the “miller” discovering the principles of how water powers the mill’s mechanisms grinding grain just as it was during the Revolutionary War.
