A new era at Sylvester Manor

Sylvester Manor, Shelter Island’s 1652 homestead, has embarked on a new era as an organic farm, historic plantation and vibrant arts and education center, with programs open to all.

We have great news!  After over 360 years of ownership by the original Colonial family, Sylvester Manor, its cultural landscape and historic structures have been donated to our nonprofit farm.

We hope you will join us as we transform this hidden treasure into a thriving nonprofit organization committed to serving our neighbors and visitors by celebrating local food, history and arts & inventiveness in the every day.
