The 9th annual Culper Spy Day will take place on
Saturday, September 9th, 2023 in Setauket
Culper Spy Day is in its 9th year and a treasure of the Three Village community. The American Revolution was swayed through a series of intelligence gathering by brave residents believing our country was a cause worth fighting for. Local Long Islanders passed information on to George Washington through cunning spycraft, codes, and couriers. Culper Spy Day is a celebration of their legacy and loyalty.
Guests at Culper Spy Day can expect to learn about American Revolutionary history in their own backyard!
The hometown heroes who risked their lives and turned the tide of the war lived here on Long Island, working with George Washington right under the noses of their British neighbors.
Through re-enactors, storytellers, demonstrations, and self-guided & docent-led tours, visitors at Culper Spy Day will enjoy information and inspiration at all of our historic sites.
The TVHS grounds will transport you back to early life on Long Island.
Visitors will have a chance to walk with and speak to patriots and loyalists, and to hear from them what life may have been like for them during the 18th century on Long Island.
We are also hosting organizations and authors who each have a unique part of the Revolutionary story to tell.
At the Three Village Historical Society, our mission is to preserve our shared history.
The Culper Spy Ring is an essential part of how we won the Revolutionary War and became a country - that’s a history we can ALL share!
Culper Spy Day is a celebration like no other, and we love seeing history come to life year after year.
Culper Spy Day is presented by the Three Village Historical Society and Tri-Spy Tours.
Made possible by the generosity of our title sponsor, Heritage Spy Ring Golf Club.
