Islip Town Living History Day

Sayville, NY

June 10, 2023

Fortunately, we had brilliant weather for this annual festival at the Grange combining the weekly farmer's market with local historical societies including the 30th Virginia, the Society of the Grand Army of the Republic, and the Bayport Aerodrome. There was also a reenactment of a 1890s murder trial in the Chapel.
