The Hallockville Museum Farm re-connects the community with its agricultural heritage. The 28-acre farm preserves nineteen historic houses, barns, and outbuildings ranging from the mid-18th century Hallock Homestead to the Depression-era Cichanowicz farmhouse. Participants tour the museum’s buildings, gardens and collections; experience real farming in the museum’s fields, and meet Hallockville’s animals. Hallockville serves as an educational resource for all age groups to raise awareness of Long Island’s agricultural heritage.
