Students Step Back in Time

During the last week of the Amityville School District’s Summer Enrichment Program, students in fourth through seventh grade visited the Old Bethpage Village Restoration.  
Students traveled from Northwest Elementary School to Old Bethpage Village Restoration, a 209-acre 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.
The students were able to see many historical artifacts in learning what life was like more than 150 years ago.
