Old Bethpage Village Restoration is a treasure to Nassau County, Long Island, and New York. It is a large grounds composed of many acres of land where one can experience what it was like to live during the time of the Civil War. There are shops from that time such as a general store and locksmith, a farm where you can visit the real animals, a school where you can take up a tablet and take a lesson from a strict schoolteacher, a creepy real graveyard, and many houses and barns on the property to explore. Occasionally they will hold a very special event such as an old fashioned ball game and a great Civil War skirmish in which there are a few hundred uniformed participants. There are many activities for children there as well and plenty of old time food and trinkets to go around. Really a great place.
