Adriance Farmhouse Tours
Select weekends year-round
Tour the historic Adriance Farmhouse and learn all about the oldest surviving structure on Queens County Farm Museum’s property! Queens Farm exemplifies the 300-year history of agriculture and farming as a way of life in New York City. The restored Adriance Farmhouse, the centerpiece of the farm complex, was first built as a three-room Dutch farmhouse in 1772. The farmhouse and surrounding area mirror the evolution of this unique tract of land from a colonial homestead to a truck farm that served the needs of a growing city in the early twentieth century.
