Old Bethpage Village Restoration is a living history museum that provides visitors with the unique opportunity to step back in time and experience life as it was on Long Island during the 19th century. The village consists of 36 houses, barns, and buildings dating from 1765 through 1865. Students learned from village craftsman and spent some time in the one room school house. The resident hog made a huge impression!
