Fodor's Review

Built in 1767 by Josiah Martin, a wealthy West Indian planter and British Loyalist during the Revolutionary War, this Georgian Colonial manor was acquired in 1824 by another Tory family, the Hewletts, and served as their family home. In 1948 it was given to the Town of Hempstead and is presently on the National Register of Historic Places. The home is now a museum with period furnishings and programs for all ages, and was recently added to the New York State Revolutionary

War Heritage Trail.
