Introduction of Caumsett State Historic Park Preserve

Caumsett State Historic Park Preserve, located on a scenic peninsula extending into Long Island Sound, has miles of bridle paths, walking, jogging, hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, and nature trails that wind through acres of woodland, meadows, rock shoreline, and salt marsh. The park has lovely gardens, excellent fishing, and permit-only scuba diving. Marshall Field III purchased 1750 acres of Lloyd Neck in 1921 in order to create one large estate. He named the land Caumsett, which means “place by a sharp rock” in Matinecock Indian.Field designed a self-contained English-style estate that served as a country club, hunting preserve, and home, complete with its own water and electricity supply. The estate had facilities for every sport except golf when it was finished. New York State purchased Caumsett State Historic Park in 1961. The park is diverse; among the many activities available to visitors are fishing, hiking, bird watching, nature photography, and nature study. As part of the Lloyd Harbor Equestrian Center, the polo pony barn offers lessons, boarding, and equestrian services. The Nassau BOCES Outdoor and Environmental Education Program is housed in the summer cottage. The Lloyd Harbor Historical Society rents the historic Henry Lloyd Manor house, which was built in 1711. The Historical Society interprets life during the colonial period historically.
