The Culper Spy Ring is a captivating facet of Long Island history, and many sites integral to this Revolutionary era espionage effort remain on Long Island today. For example, history enthusiasts still visit the lighthouse at Execution Rocks off Sand’s Point, where British soldiers killed rebels and spies by chaining them to the rocks at low tide and allowing the rising waters to drown them. What is now the Target Rock Wildlife Refuge near the village of Lloyd Harbor was once a training area for British soldiers. Visitors can tour the home of one of General George Washington’s most renowned spies, Robert Townsend, and Raynham Hall in Oyster Bay. The David Conklin Farmhouse in Huntington, built in 1750, was where Sybil Conklin and her family lived while her husband was imprisoned by the British. Sagtikos Manor housed British officers and later, George Washington. Brewster House, in the Town of Brookhaven, was built in 1665. During the Revolution, Joseph Brewster used the property as a pub, serving British officers while his cousin Caleb worked as a spy. The scenic Long Island Heritage Trail follows the harbors and inlets of the Long Island Sound, where Americans risked their lives rowing intelligence to Washington in Connecticut. The efforts of the spy ring helped assure Washington’s eventual victory, and in 1790, the general visited Long Shore to thank these brave American men and women for their courage. The trail, which stretches 100 miles from Great Neck to Port Jefferson, was also used to its full advantage by rumrunners and bootleggers.
