Queens’ Fort Totten boasts a rich history. The US Army bought this former farmland in the 19th century, and it played a part in the Civil War, World War I and World War II. The site’s landmark, castle-like Officers’ Club is now home to the Society’s exhibits, which educate children and adults about Bayside while helping BHS preserve the neighborhood’s distinct heritage. It’s a must for history buffs and anyone who enjoys spectacular architecture.
