Lefferts Historic House

“Built by a Dutch family in the 18th-century farming village of Flatbush, Lefferts Historic House features a working garden, historic artifacts, period rooms and exhibits. Visitors are encouraged to play with traditional tools, toys and games, and engage in historic activities such as candle making, sewing and butter churning. Prospect Park Alliance and the Historic House Trust of New York City jointly operate and preserve this important piece of New York City’s past.”

Every weekend, there are tours of the upstairs rooms. On Fathers Day and on Openhousenewyork weekend, there are additional behind the scenes tours of the attic and basement areas where an actual Dutch family once lived.
