The Sagtikos Manor is a historic jewel on the South Shore of Long Island. Its history spans more than three centuries dating from 1692. The British Army occupied the Manor for a brief time during the Revolutionary War. President George Washington stayed here during his tour of Long Island in 1790. Step back in time and take a tour of the Manor House led by docents in period dress. The furnishings, artwork and personal objects in the house were all family owned. Once 1200+ acres, this 10 acre estate has a carriage house, buttery, and walled garden and family cemetery on the property.
