Hidden Treasures of Islip

On Saturday, Nov. 7, several of our members joined the Town of Islip on a tour of several historic spots, beginning with Brookwood Hall, stopping at Islip Grange, and ending at St. John’s Church in Oakdale. Led by town historian George Munkenbeck, it was both fun and informative.
