Local Trivia: Before Watergate

Who knew a former Blue Point student was involved in the Watergate scandal?

Local historian Gene Horton brainstormed some great questions relating to the area's history for Patch readers to test their knowledge of Bayport-Blue Point. Look for a multiple choice question at least once a week under this column (Mystery Photos, Special Snapshots & Local Trivia).

Monday's Local Trivia question quizzes readers on local people in history.
