Fodor's Expert Review Lefferts Historic House

Park Slope and Prospect Park Educational Institution
A visit to this Dutch Colonial farmhouse, built in 1783 and moved from nearby Flatbush Avenue to Prospect Park in 1918, is a window into how Brooklynites lived in the 19th century, when the area was predominantly farmland. Rooms are furnished with antiques and reproductions from the 1820s, when the house was last redecorated.
