  • Free 1 hr 45 min tour of the 25 room home (length varies by guide) by a very knowledgeable guide named Denise. Covered everything from Revolutionary War era to 1960s when the house was donated. Tons of well-preserved artifacts. Graveyard and nature trails on the estate as well.
  • We went during the very end of the off season and had a private tour throughout the house. Learned a ton of cool stuff and saw a ton of cool things. Highly recommend!
  • One of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence. NPS tours.
  • Great little hidden Gem in the middle of Mastic Beach. The guides were excellent and place was rich in History from the the 1700s to the 1960s. Worth a trip especially since William Flord was a signer of the Declaration of Independence.
