Front of William Floyd EstateOn May 29, 2008 I visited this wonderful estate for the first time. I was with a group of librarians from RASD, a division of the Suffolk County Library Association.

This home was built in 1718 and added onto many times over the years. This is one wing, visible from the back of the house, with many room additions made to it through the years.

This is another wing, with many room additions visible. This wing is also off the rear of the house.

Revolutionary War general and a signer of the Declaration of Independence, William Floyd, was born in this house in 1734. The house remained in the Floyd family until 1976. For more house history see the National Park Service website.

Back behind the Floyd Estate there are a number of farm accessory buildings. This is what the inside of the tool shed looks like. And this is the view from the door of the tool shed.
