King Manor Museum

150-03 Jamaica Ave
Queens, NY 11432


The King Manor Museum is an historic site dedicated to Rufus King, one of the authors of the Constitution, as well as one of New York State’s first senators. He was staunchly opposed to slavery at a time when such opposition was rare. Today, visitors can tour the house and learn about life on a farm in the 1800s, as well as discover more about King’s antislavery work.
