The Conklin house, which contains artifacts and is decorated to illustrate three periods of the country's history: Colonial, Federal and Victorian, is staffed by Docents and is open for tours Monday through Friday and Sundays.
When you visit this National Register property, occupied by the Conklin family for over one-hundred and fifty years, you will see the original rooms of the house constructed c. 1750. You will also see the area where Sybel Conklin and her children lived and worked while her husband, David, was held prisoner by the British in 1777.
As our volunteer docents guide you through the house, reflecting on life in Huntington from the mid-eighteenth century to the early twentieth century, be sure to notice the table and chair used by George Washington during his tour of Long Island in 1790 and the bed that the Conklins slept in.
One of the earliest museums on Long Island, this home was given to the Society by Ella Conklin Hurd in 1911.
