Summary

Significance: General William Floyd, the son of the original builder was a signer of the Declaration of Independence. He was born here in 1734 and lived at the manor until he moved to his upstate holdings at Westernville in Oneida County in 1803. The Mastic Beach house is thought to be with the exception of the house at Westernville the only extant house of a signer in New York State. It is also reputed to be the best preserved and oldest manor house remaining in this section of Long Island.
