Long Island Traditions presents 2021 Bay House Tours
Saturday August 28 – departs from Freeport
11 am and 1 pm
Price: $55/person, $100/couple; $5 discount for LI Traditions members
In the Town of Hempstead 30 bay houses once stood on island marshlands, originally built by fishermen and baymen that have been passed down from generation to generation. After Superstorm Sandy only 14 remained, with many damaged. We will be visiting two of the survivors on each trip. The owners are repairing their historic houses, now considered eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.
Take a tour on a small vessel for the 1½ hour trip to these historic houses. Proof of vaccination is required 2 weeks prior to the trip. You will be required to e-mail or text a photo of your vaccination card to us by 2 weeks before the tour.
Due to safety concerns space is limited to 12 people per trip ages 10 and up. Participants must be able to climb ladders and feel comfortable in a work environment.
Long Island Traditions members can register beginning June 14.
All others can register beginning July 7.
Ticket limit 2/per person. For reservations call LI Traditions at (516) 767-8803.
