Old Bethpage Village Restoration Reviews
A taste of history on Long Island Dec 06, 2012
Long Island may be more known for being built up, but Old Bethpage Village Restoration is a great place to visit to about life on Long Island in the 19th century.
The houses are from various time periods and were moved from various parts of the Island (mostly Nassau County) to the property to be restored. The oldest house is a Dutch style house that dates back to the 1820s and the newest on the property is a grocery store from the 1860s. Old Bethpage also has a working farm (complete with animals) and they grow vegetables for sustainable farming. The produce is available for purchase on weekends in the summer.
Many of the people who work at the village have special skills (such as a loom maker, carpenter and wool spinner).
