Bay House Tours August 20 at 10 am
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. Tours will take place on July 23 and August 20 departing from Freeport.
