Queens Historical Society has preserved the 18th century farmhouses including Kingsland Homestead. It is built in the typical half house style of Long Island built by a wealthy Quaker. Occupied until the 1920s, the homestead, its furniture, architecture and artifacts are all on display. This homestead has moved twice from its original location for preservation sake to its present place. Gamble roof and crescent windows are typical of such homes. The first floor is used for exhibitions, the second floor parlor is still decorated in the 18th century style, and is on display.
