Celebrate with 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’re glad you’ve connected with us in this momentous year when our farm received the gift of the historic Manor House, its fields, forest and cultural landscape after 360 years of ownership by the Sylvester family.

If you’ve visited, you know we have plenty of work to do to sustain this place and by doing so, help sustain our community.  With your support, stories will continue to flow from every inch of the Manor and its grounds and this place will endure for generations to come.
