Historic House Tours this Weekend!

We’re excited to announce that two of our historic houses will be open for tours from June 1st through October 5th!

Joseph Lloyd Manor Tours
Open Saturdays and Sundays with tours available at 11:00 AM, 12:30 PM, and 2:00 PM.

Joseph Lloyd Manor was completed in 1767 for Joseph Lloyd (1716–1780). Here, Jupiter Hammon, one of America’s first published black writers, composed his best-known works while enslaved by the Lloyd family.

This guided tour will lead visitors through the first and second floor of the Manor, and will provide visitors the opportunity to consider and discuss the complicated history of a successful merchant family divided by war alongside the perspective of a man in bondage reflecting on liberty in the newly formed United States.

Sherwood-Jayne House Tours
Open Saturdays with tours at 11:00 AM, 12:00 PM, 1:00 PM, and 2 PM.

Built in colonial Setauket around 1730, the Sherwood-Jayne Farm House served as the home of the Jayne family, including William Jayne II, a prominent Loyalist during the Revolutionary War. The Jaynes maintained the farm for over 150 years before selling it in 1908 to Howard Sherwood, the founder of Preservation Long Island. Sherwood restored the farm to its colonial appearance and used the house to showcase his collection of American and European antiques.

This guided tour explores the first and second floors of the house and invites visitors to consider questions like: What is the cost of freedom? How should we preserve the past?
