  • “QHS, headquartered in an historic site, Kingsland Homestead, maintains and explores the history of its colonial farmhouse through exhibitions, house and walking tours, and educational programs.

     

    As the only museum of Queens history in the borough, the Society plans, researches and mounts a regular series of history-related exhibitions and lecture series in its gallery space totaling 1,350 square feet at the Kingsland Homestead. It also conducts walking tours of the borough.

     

    As a local history research center, the Society maintains and makes accessible to the public, by appointment only, a library and archive of primary and secondary source materials (maps, atlases, manuscripts, photographs, documents, family papers and ephemera) covering every chapter of the over 300 year history of Queens.”
