Request Program

Joseph Lloyd Manor

The American Revolution on Long Island
4th and 5th Grade

Like many families on Long Island, the Lloyds were divided by the American Revolution. Henry and James Lloyd remained loyal to the crown, while their brother Joseph fled to Connecticut as British soldiers looted his property. In this program, students examine colonial maps to discover the strategic importance of Lloyd Neck, learn about the British occupation of Lloyd manor by exploring artifacts scattered throughout the house, and discuss the importance of liberty for both free and enslaved Americans.

Colonial Merchants and Trade
4th and 5th Grade

Discover the experiences of merchants in colonial America. The Lloyd family accumulated their wealth over generations through local and international trade. In his program, students barter for the valuable trade goods that furnish Joseph Lloyd Manor, learn about the dangers posed by pirates at sea, consult the Lloyds’ 1795 inventory to determine the value of their wares, and discuss the complex relationship between the Lloyd family’s wealth and the people they enslaved.
