On this lively journey back in time, you’ll meet Native American Chief Wampage II and his daughter Anna Pell, enslaved Africans Manuel de Gerrit de Reus and Dorothy Creole, Jewish resident Asser Levy, Anthony van Sallée, aka “The Turk”, and women’s advocate Catalina Trico.

Learn how New Netherlanders lived, where they worked, whom they married and even what they drank. This diverse population spoke 18 dialects or languages and laid the foundations for today’s New York.

Using sliding time maps and innovative research methods, NAHC is about to reveal aspects of Long Island’s past. Attend this program for a walk down Stone Street and a sneak preview of NAHC's Long Island expansion.
