The Spirits Tour is BACK!! Ah, October. The perfect time of year to grab a light jacket, sip a hot drink, and go for a casual walk through a cemetery, right?!
For over a quarter of a century, the Three Village Historical Society has invited visitors from far and wide to explore the lives of some of our area’s greatest contributors, both famous and little known at its annual Spirits Tour.
For the 28th Annual Spirits Tour, to be held on Saturday, October 22nd (Rain date: 10/29), the interesting twist this year is that guests will be guided to 10 locations in two of Setauket’s historic cemeteries — Caroline Episcopal Church of Setauket and the Setauket Presbyterian Church Cemetery — to walk-in on conversations between Spies of the American Revolution, Known and Unknown.
General Admission tickets are $25/person and there will be an extremely limited supply of tickets at-the-door. Tours leave every 15 minutes beginning at 5:00 p.m. with the last tour leaving at 7:30 p.m.
Come early to the Setauket Presbyterian Fellowship Hall to shop the Three Village Historical Society gift shop, enjoy live music from The Long Island Youth Development Music Club, visit mobile Spies exhibit from historian Bev Tyler, chat with members from the Daughters of the American Revolution, Anna Smith Strong Chapter, or enjoy complimentary refreshments from Druthers Coffee, Ann Maries Farmstand, Stop & Shop of Setauket and Costco.
(A VERY special thank you to Luigi's Pizzeria of Setauket for feeding our volunteer actors, guides and crossing guards, etc.)
The Spirits Cemetery Tour is an annual event that functions as the introduction to the Society’s traditional fundraising season. As a 501c3 nonprofit, the Society exists to educate people about this area’s rich cultural heritage as well as foster and preserve local history. It relies on donations and money raised through events and programs to support its educational initiatives throughout the year. So, come meander through memories. Donations are suggested and appreciated.
