Tour Joseph Lloyd Manor! Open Saturdays and Sundays, guided tours are available at 11:00AM and 1:30PM, and self-guided tours from 2:00PM to 3:00PM.
Built in 1767, Joseph Lloyd's Manor House was once the center of the Manor of Queens Village, a 3,000-acre provisioning plantation established in the late 17th century on the ancestral lands of the Matinecock Nation. Jupiter Hammon, the first published Black American poet, was one of the many people of African descent enslaved at the site. Here, Hammon authored his most significant works about the moral conflicts of slavery and freedom in the early United States. At Joseph Lloyd Manor, visitors learn about the site's early Indigenous settlements, the British occupation during the Revolutionary War, the birth of a new nation, and the history of slavery in New York.
With options for both guided and self-guided experiences, we welcome you to experience the dynamic history of this site that will leave you with a deeper appreciation of the people and events that shaped the nation's history.
