Location: Prospect Park, Flatbush and Ocean Aves and Empire Blvd., Brooklyn
Lefferts Historic House in Prospect Park is one of the few surviving Dutch Colonial farmhouses in Brooklyn. Built for a prominent 18th-century Flatbush landowner, it was home to at least four generations of the Lefferts family. Lefferts Historic House represents more than 200 years of New York City history. Lefferts is a great place to add a bit of education to a day of fun for young Park visitors. It‘s located in the Park‘s Children‘s Corner, right near the Carousel and the Prospect Park Zoo, and is also a unique place to hold a child‘s birthday party. In addition to the museum, there are events and exhibitions that change with the seasons. A fun place for the entire family!
