Conservation and preservation play an essential role in safeguarding and promoting the importance of history. We proudly maintain six houses, eight outbuildings, as well as a community Educational Grow to Give Garden and farm animals.
Our buildings are located at three sites: St. Johnland Road in Kings Park, North Country Road in Smithtown, and on our 20-acre Village of the Branch historic district site on Middle Country Road. Our main grounds are open year round, but are best visited during public events when the buildings are open with interpretative tours.
