Join us for a tour of the home of Rufus King, signer of the United States Constitution and early voice in the anti-slavery movement.

Originally constructed in the 1750s, King lived here from 1805 until his death in 1827. Executive Director of the King Manor Museum Nadezhda Allen will lead a behind-the-scenes tour, covering the entire house from top to bottom. You'll get to go into the attic and the basement and from the servants’ quarters to the King family’s parlor.

Explore how the house, a designated New York City Individual and Interior Landmark, tells its history of three major phases of construction (c.1750, c.1790, and 1810) and still holds a few mysteries.
