Join Preservation Long Island Education & Engagement Director, Andrew Tharler, for special extended access guided tours, offered at 11 am or 2 pm, of Joseph Lloyd Manor (ca. 1767) focusing on Preservation Long Island’s ongoing work with the Jupiter Hammon Project. Attendees will view a new panel exhibition and audiovisual installation centered on the life and poetry of one of the first published African American poets, Jupiter Hammon (1711–before 1806), and step into spaces previously closed to the public.
Joseph Lloyd Manor in Lloyd Harbor, NY was once the center of a 3,000-acre provisioning plantation established in the late 17th century. Jupiter Hammon, one of the many people of African descent enslaved at the site, authored his most significant writings about the moral conflicts of slavery and freedom in the newly formed United States. Please join us as we continue to explore the complicated history of this site.
*Please note that this tour includes stairs. Only the first floor of the Manor is wheelchair accessible.
