Kingsland Homestead - Home of the QHS

Built between 1774 and 1785, the Kingsland Homestead is one of the earliest surviving examples of residential style construction common throughout Long Island, specifically Queens, in the late 18th and 19th centuries. A Long Island half-house, it is characterized by a wide side hall and double parlors off to one side. Other features include a central chimney between the side parlors, a dependent kitchen wing, and three front windows on the second floor.
