East End: Hallockville Museum Farm in Riverhead
This week on the East End, News 12's Doug Geed takes a visit at the Hallockville Museum Farm in Riverhead. The museum sits on 28 acres, with 19 historic buildings. It was the Hallock family's homestead. The 1765 house is their original homestead, with additions over the years. And that's where the last remaining Hallocks lived out their days until the 1970s.
You can walk through the same house where members of the Hallock family walked centuries ago. And 21st century technology allows you to "meet" members of the family, virtually. You can take a self-guided tour that includes interactive stops.
You can also take the same tour from your own home by going to the Hallockville website.
Hallockville is open seven days a week.
