During the Cold Spring Harbor Village Main Street Association’s holiday festivities on Saturday, December 18th, 2021, United States Congressman Thomas Suozzi of New York’s 3rd District and The Very Reverend Gideon Pollach of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Cold Spring Harbor, stopped by our Gallery for Changing Exhibitions to view Facing Slavery: Reframing the Lloyd Family Portraits.

Through an important collection of early American portraits recently donated to Preservation Long Island, the exhibition explored the entangled stories of the Lloyd family and the people they enslaved for over a hundred years at the Manor of Queens Village (today Lloyd Neck), including writer Jupiter Hammon (1711–before 1806).

If you were not able to visit the gallery to view the exhibition before it closed on December 19th, this and other exhibitions are available for you to explore virtually on our Exhibitions page!
