Living History at the Longwood Estate

Ridge, NY

September 25 - 26, 2021

Thanks to last year's successful Ketcham Inn event, we were granted our first ever invitation to the annual Brookhaven Country Fair at the Longwood Estate in Ridge, Long Island. We had perfect weather all weekend that brought in such crowds that we were literally exhausted from talking by the end our stay. We were joined by our Confederate brethren, the 30th VA (with special guests from the 9th VA) plus the Revolutionary War reenactors who have been a staple at this fair, the 3rd New York.
