FARMINGVILLE, NY — Instead of hitting the stores on a brisk Black Friday morning, outdoor enthusiasts decided to ‘Conquer the Hills’ in Farmingville.

The Farmingville Historical Society hosted its annual Conquer the Hills 5K Run and 2.6K Hike at Farmingville Hills County Park. OnSachem proudly served as the media sponsor.

All the money raised will support local history education and preservation of the landmark Farmingville Schoolhouse and neighboring school master’s house on Horseblock Road.

OnSachem Publisher Jim Green brings you this video report from the event.
