Youth Programs 

Boy Scout Venturing Crew #178 from Jamaica, Queens trekked out to visit the Montauk Light House and on their return stopped by the Moriches to visit the Ketcham Inn. The Crew was treated to a tour by President Mr. Bertram Seides. The youth learned about the history of the Inn, historic preservation and its importance to the community and that Thomas Jefferson and James Madison were actually visitors at the Inn.
During their visit, they visited the Teepee, the Community Garden, and the Book Barn. The Crew was surprised to learn how many years Mr. Seides has dedicated to preserving the history of the Moriches. They visited the book barn and expressed an interest in returning to see future improvements to the Ketcham Inn.
