The remarkable history of the 1768 Joseph Lloyd Manor House, the seat of a 3,000-acre agricultural estate built for Joseph Lloyd, the second lord of the Manor of Queens Village. The Manor, which was occupied by the British during the Revolutionary War, was also where Jupiter Hammon, an enslaved man and one of the first published African American authors, lived for most of his life.
