The Kingsland Homestead was built in 1785 by Charles Doughty, a Quaker. The house was saved from demolition in 1968 by the Historic House Trust and moved from a location a couple of miles away, to its current location in Weeping Beech Park. It derives its name from the husband of one of Doughty’s daughters whose last name was King. The family lived in the house until the 1920’s.

The Kingsland Homestead was moved about a mile or two from its original location near the freeways, to save it from being torn down. It is now in Flushing off a lovely park, near the Bowne House and many other colonial and nineteenth century American historic sites.kingsland homestead queens history
