King Manor was built in 1733-55 and established as a museum in 1900. The museum interprets founding father Rufus King’s political legacy and antislavery history to teach critical thinking for a healthier democracy. The museum facilitates educational programs that not only engage with our city's past, but connect this shared past with our present and future. We provide tours of the historical home of Rufus King, activities for children and teens, and a community space for artists, activists, and historians. During OHNY Weekend on Saturday October 22, King Manor will host its annual Fall Festival, which includes crafts, a pumpkin patch, and historical tours.

Tours will be available throughout the day.
