This year’s tour is a continuation of last year’s popular Culper Spy Ring theme, this time with a retrospective view that reflects on the challenges and successes attributed to George Washington’s spies.
For the past several weeks, we have been busily preparing the costumes and props for this annual event featuring community volunteers and historians. It’s a wonderfully immersive experience educating about some of the fascinating real-life events of our community’s history. The story of the Culper Spy Ring has been receiving a lot of attention due to the popular AMC series, Turn. There is currently much local excitement about the discovery of a document shedding more light on the Spy Ring and other individuals from Port Jefferson and Mount Sinai who were involved in its activities.
