On Friday the 13, 2020 an author and a paranormal investigator traveled to Port Washington to visit the Sands-Willets House. Met by trustee Fred Blumlein and former Education Director Ann Latner they explored the centuries old house in the hopes of some type of contact with the spiritual realm.

The positive reaction from "the other side" didn't disappoint them, nor was it frightening in any way. You are invited to hear their experience, including recordings in this hour-long webinar.

Long Island’s history extends beyond the physical reality surrounding us into the great unknown of the spiritual realm. Deceased patrons and other visitors from the past linger at the Milleridge Inn in Jericho, one of the oldest continually operating restaurants in America. Victims of the Louis V. Place shipwreck aren’t resting so peacefully at the Lakeview Cemetery in Patchogue. Spirits move furniture, knock on doors and pace through the exhibits at the Long Island Maritime Museum. Award-winning author and historian Kerriann Flanagan Brosky, alongside medium and paranormal investigator Joe Giaquinto, use extensive interviews, research and investigations to unveil a new collection of Long Island’s ghostly past.
