Join us for an Open meeting of the Farmingville Historical Society. We are also hosting author Gail Stratford. Gail authored, “Who Killed Starr Faithfull?: and other murderous tales of Long Island.” From a man who kept his girlfriend in a closet to a young woman who washed ashore in Long Beach, Long Island has a colorful history of murder and mayhem. Gail Rough-Stratford has always had a fascination with murder. Even as a child, she would clip news stories and save them in a shoe box under her bed. Presented here are some of those same stories, with tales of the Amityville Horror, the Railroad shooter, a young woman who arranged a murder during home room and many more. Gail Rough-Stratford is an English professor on the lovely, and dangerous, Long Island with her husband of 36 years and their two Yorkies, Max and Millie. And we will highlight our own local Farmingville murder mystery from the 1800’s…
