Join a walking tour to portions of the former 300-acre 17th and 18th century Bowne House Farm and the 19th century Parsons Nursery.

The 1661 Bowne House, the oldest house in Queens, was home to John Bowne and nine generations of the Bowne/Parsons family. For early Quakers, it was a place to gather for worship. For thousands of visitors, it has been a memorial to John Bowne and his role in securing the freedoms espoused in the 1645 Charter of the Town of Flushing and the Flushing Remonstrance (1657), principles later enshrined in the First Amendment.

The museum offers tours. For more information, please visit

Bowne House is a City, State, and National landmark. Bowne House is part of NYC Parks and the Historic House Trust.
