New "Ambling Around Brookhaven Hamlet" Walking Tour Posted

Walking Tours

In 2014, a wonderful book, “Ambling Around Brookhaven Hamlet, Self-Guided Tours of Our Historic Hamlet and Its Hospitable Habitat,” was created by some wonderful people, Anita Cohen, Martin, “Marty,” Van Lith, and John Deitz of The Fire Place History Club. The book has been updated, added to, and is now, 2017, in its Second Edition. It should be noted that the project was made possible by a grant obtained by Suffolk County Legislator Kate Browning for the First Edition of the book.

When we learned of the book, we approached Marty Van Lith and asked if we might reproduce the book, in serial form, on and share it, free of charge, with our readers. Marty gave us an enthusiastic go ahead as that was the whole point, to get information about Brookhaven Hamlet into as many hands as possible.

The next walking tour has been posted. This time it's to visit the family cemeteries in our area, as well as Oaklawn Cemetery.  Click here for more information.
