"Spy Story"

This house has seen plenty of intrigue: built in 1740, it was originally the home of the Townsends, one of the families who founded Oyster Bay, who happened to also be members of the Culper Spy Ring for George Washington; however, the plot thickened during Revolutionary War years, when the house was headquarters for the British forces. This 20-room museum has been accredited by the American Association of Museums. This house has been honored by the State of New York and declared a part of the Revolutionary War Trails Site. This is a recognition of the Townsends' involvement in the fight for independence. The museum provides an insight in the life of the people of the Long Island before modernization changed everything.
