The length of Route 25A from Great Neck to Port Jefferson stretches along Long Island’s North Shore, winding through towns that George Washington explored during a 1790 carriage tour as the newly-elected president. Honoring President George Washington’s journey along this very route, Route 25A from Great Neck to Port Jefferson is now known as the Long Island Heritage Trail and, as designated by New York State, the Washington Spy Trail.
Today, visitors can travel the same Presidential route on a journey that includes early 1900s Gold Coast mansions at the western end of the trail, and 17th Century farmhouses and Prohibition speakeasies in the east. The North Shore Promotion Alliance provides a guide to visiting the major attractions and historical sites along the Long Island Heritage Trail, allowing locals and tourists alike to explore this incredible pathway through history. In addition to sharing this pathway’s story with visitors, the North Shore Promotion Alliance’s mission is to promote the history, culture, and beauty of Long Island’s North Shore.

The museum is also the home of George Washington's intelligence officer, Robert Townsend. The home and museum are a time capsule of Long Island Life in the 18th and 19th Centuries. It was built circa 1738 as a two-story frame house with central brick chimney, gable roof, flush siding of wide boards and a five-bay façade with an entrance in the middle. The house contained four rooms, two on each level, with a garret or attic under the roof. The first floor consisted of a “hall” and “parlor” that flanked a narrow passage with a winding staircase built in front of the chimney. On the second floor were two “chambers” that corresponded to the hall and parlor below. Fireplaces opened into all four rooms from the central chimney.
