Completed in 1767 for Joseph Lloyd (1716–1780), the third lord of the Manor of Queens Village, the Joseph Lloyd Manor House once served as the seat of a 3,000-acre provisioning plantation and agricultural estate. The British occupied Lloyd Manor during the Revolutionary War and it is where Jupiter Hammon (1711–before 1806), one of the first published African American authors, lived, wrote, and was enslaved for most of his life.
The Manor remained in the Lloyd family until 1876, eventually becoming the country house of Mrs. Anna Matheson Wood (1882–1980) who donated the property to Preservation Long Island in 1968. Today, Lloyd Manor is furnished to the 1793 inventory of Joseph’s nephew, John Lloyd II (1745–1792) and it occupies a spectacular 2.5-acre setting overlooking Lloyd Harbor.
