Preserving a historic North Fork icon…
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places
Peconic Landing stands on 144-acres of the historic property home to Brecknock Hall. One of Long Island’s most historic examples of 19th-century Italianate architecture, the Hall dates back to 1857, built using the finest materials and effects of its time. It served as the family residence of David Gelston Floyd, whaling entrepreneur and grandson of General William Floyd, the only Long Islander to have signed the Declaration of Independence. Thanks to the dedication of the not-for-profit Brecknock Hall Foundation and many volunteers, Brecknock Hall was restored to its original splendor in 2008, giving new life to this historic gem that is now used for community gatherings, cultural events, and educational programs.
Brecknock Hall is listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP), and leftover stone from building the historic mansion was used to build the Floyd Memorial Library in Greenport Village.
The not-for-profit Brecknock Hall Foundation, spearheaded by a Board of Trustees, works towards the continued preservation of the history and heritage of Brecknock Hall, offering educational programs and events open to the public, including Peconic Landing annual End of Summer Celebration & Fireworks Show each year.
