It was the site of an early European settlement in 1664 and the embarkation point of the Revolutionary War foray into enemy territory by Maj. Benjamin Tallmadge, a member of Gen. George Washingtons Setauket spy ring. Mount Sinai was a farming and seafaring community in the 1600s, 1700s, and 1800s. In 1891, it became the site of the sanitary resort known as the Crystal Brook Park Association. Later, it drew an early community of artists and photographers who captured the natural beauty of the area. Mount Sinai portrays these and many other events of historical and cultural interest.
