Completed in 1767 for Joseph Lloyd, the third lord of the Manor of Queens Village, the Joseph Lloyd Manor House was the seat of a 3,000-acre agricultural estate. The British occupied it during the Revolutionary War and it is where Jupiter Hammon, one of the first published African American authors, lived and wrote. Enslaved by the Lloyd family for most of his life, Hammon wrote powerfully about the paradoxes of American freedom and slavery. The house remained in the Lloyd family until 1876 and eventually became the country house of Mrs. Anna Matheson Wood who donated the property to the Society in 1968. Today, Lloyd Manor is furnished to the 1793 inventory of Joseph’s nephew, John Lloyd II, and occupies a spectacular 2.5-acre setting overlooking Lloyd Harbor.
