Hallockville Museum Farm

Hallockville Museum Farm

The 28-acre farm preserves 18 historic houses, barns and outbuildings ranging from the mid-18th century Hallock Homestead to the Depression-era Chichanowitcz Farmhouse. Visitors can tour the museum's buildings, gardens, and collections; experience real farming in the museum's fields; and meet Hallockville's friendly cows, sheep and chickens. Hallockville serves as an educational resource for all age groups to raise awareness of Eastern Long Island's agricultural heritage.
