The Hidden History of Islip Tours
The purpose of the Islip History Tours is to share the history of Islip Town and how it relates to the history of our nation. This tour highlights the many historic sites in the town that are hidden in plain sight. This series of tours will also build awareness of and interest in the historical societies in the town. ALL TOURS INCLUDE BUS, TOUR, LUNCH AND/OR SNACKS.
Back by popular demand, we will be scheduling a new roster of tours for this year. Details will be posted here as they become available.
