Setauket and Brookhaven History Through the Murals of Vance Locke 

Published by Three Village Historical Society historian, writer and photographer, Beverly C. Tyler.

Discover the stories of the indigenous people called Setalcott. Meet the farmers, ship builders, blacksmiths and millers whose lives created our communities. Get to know the Patriots, Loyalists, soldiers and spies who lived through the Revolutionary War while British forces occupied all of Long Island. Follow the clues to each mural as you explore almost 400 years of Setauket and Brookhaven history. 

Vance Locke painted the mural scenes of Setauket and Brookhaven history in the Setauket School auditorium. The murals, completed in 1952, are used each year to introduce Three Village elementary school students to the stories of our rich  heritage.

   

This 38-page book features descriptions of Vance Locke’s murals, historic photographs, maps and contemporary photographs of the historic scenes today by photographer and historian Beverly Tyler.
