We've lived in the area for many years--- and finally toured it. The staff is extremely knowledgeable about the Revolutionary War--and the general history of this area. Walking from the parking area to the museum is paved, it's a bit long and steep. They let...More

History has a way of sometimes glorifying certain aspects (Battle of Yorktown, Valley Forge), which are very important factors in the battle of Independence, but somehow other areas without “trendy or fashionable”names are overlooked (Setauket, Battle of Long Island or Stoney Point).
