On May 27, 2023, from 10 am to 4 pm (rain date May 28) on the Village Green in Cutchogue; the Cutchogue-New Suffolk Historical Council will hold a Family History Day. The day is designed to be a fun way for families and children to learn about their local history. It’s created around the 3rd New York Regiment, which will be reenacting drills & recreating an encampment from the Revolutionary War. This group is named and modeled after the regiment authorized on May 25, 1775, and comprised of men from Suffolk County. They will also be talking about our area’s involvement in the Revolutionary War.
There will be colonial cooking demonstrations with food cooked over an open flame from 18th-century recipes. See examples of colonial textile making, including spinning and weaving. Listen to an old Naval Balladeer perform historic music of the late Colonial Period and the American Revolution. Meet Tee-Pee Ted and learn about the local Corchaug Indian tribe through hands-on teaching methods. The Cutchogue-New Suffolk Library will be providing colonial games, and of course, we will be offering tours of all of our historic buildings on the Village Green.
There will also be food and raffles, so bring the whole family and have fun while learning about your local history. We strongly encourage everyone to come in period costume to get into the spirit of the day! (Suggested donation $5.00)
