Understanding, celebrating and preserving Long Island's cultural heritage



Take an aerial tour of SPLIA’s Joseph Lloyd Manor historic site. The house was built in 1766 on a hill overlooking Lloyd Harbor. The grounds contain a formal garden and a farm complex across the street on Lloyd Lane. Lloyd Manor was the home of Jupiter Hammon, a slave who became the first published African-American poet.
