It was his home from 1734 until 1803. This home is distinct from Gen. William Floyd House, his later home in Westernville, New York, that is also on the National Register and which was designated a National Historic Landmark.The two William Floyd houses are believed to be the only surviving homes in New York of signers of the Declaration of Independence.

  • 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.
