HouseWitches of Long Island?

Witch hunt1658 – 35 years BEFORE the Witch Trials of Salem, Ma. – Easthampton, Long Island was home to one of the first Witchcraft Trials in the American colonies.

Goody Garlick, lived close to her accuser, Elizabeth Howell. After falling ill, Elizabeth claimed that Garlick was a witch who had appeared in her bedroom and made her sick. Days later, Elizabeth died.

Elizabeth’s death caused a raucous among the farming community of 33 families. The local justices acted on the word that Goody Garlick was responsible. Three weeks of hearings and depositions ensued. Testimony by Elizabeth’s family and townspeople weakened Goody Garlick’s defense.

Unable to make a decision, the case was sent to trial in Hartford, Ct. on charges of witchcraft. The jury found Goody Garlick not guilty and she continued to reside in East Hampton.

In 1664, George Wood, a Setauket landowner and innkeeper, sickened and died. Soon thereafter, his infant son also died. The two deaths resulted in the only other Witchcraft Trial of Long Islanders.

Mary and Ralph Hall were indicted on charges of witchcraft and sorcery in connection with the death of the Woods.

The Only Witchcraft Trial in New York State was held in October 1665.

The jury found that the evidence raised some suspicion of Mary Hall but was not worthy of charging her. The charges were dismissed against the Halls.

The City of Brotherly Love is home to many world-class museums. Plan ahead and admission may be free or discounted.

The Franklin Institute is one of America’s oldest and premier centers of science education. The Institute offers exciting access to science and technology in ways that would dazzle and delight its namesake. Admission is free on “community nights” through November 20th.

On the first Sunday of every month and every Wednesday evening, admission to the world-renowned collection at the Philadelphia Museum of Art is pay-what-you-wish. Visitors must pay at least one cent.

The Rodin Museum, home to the largest collection of Rodin’s work outside of France, is affiliated with the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Admission is pay-what-you-wish at all times, with the same caveat that visitors must pay at least one cent. The garden and courtyard are free year-round.

On every second Saturday, the African American Museum offers free admission for the first 250 visitors. The museum is the first institution built by a major U.S. city to preserve, interpret and exhibit the heritage and culture of African-Americans. The newest fall exhibition retells parts of American slavery through a nontraditional lens: cotton.

The Barnes Foundation offers free admission on first Sundays to its entire collection as well as family activities and performances. Set on four and one-half acres of landscaped grounds, the Foundation boasts an impressive collection that features one of the world’s foremost collections of French impressionist and post-impressionist paintings.

Saved By The Charger!

CCTEmergencyCharger.jpg

We are asking ourselves, “Why didn’t we come up with this?” 🤔
A great alternative to a power bank, Pop Chargers are pre-charged cellphone chargers. They are lightweight, disposable and plug right in to cellphones.
We found the versions for Android and iPhone at a big box retailer and stocked up on these instant power sources for student tours!

Happy Traveling!
