William Floyd Estate celebrates 300 years

As the William Floyd Estate marks its 300th year, the National Park Service showcased a special exhibit chronicling historic milestones of the prominent Long Island family. A celebration of the Mastic Beach property's tricentennial on Saturday featured the unveiling of a new historic marker, detailing the property's significance. In addition to exploring 25 rooms of the estate, visitors can also see an exhibit that opened in late May featuring family artifacts that had never been shared with the public. One such relic is the original Floyd Farm deed from 1718, when Richard Floyd Jr. acquired the original 4,400-acre property, according to the National Park Service. (Credit: Ed Betz)
