Day 566

King Manor Museum

July 18th, 2013

Standing out dramatically from the Jamaica streetscape, this house and the park that surrounds it were once part of the estate of Rufus King, a framer and signer of the Constitution (note the words of the preamble running across the top of the fence) and a US senator and diplomat. You can learn about the house's live-in caretaker and see a couple of videos of the interior here.
