THE STORY
Named for owner David Gelston Floyd’s ancestral home of Brecknockshire, Wales, Brecknock Hall was constructed between 1851 –1857. A grandson of William Floyd, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, David Floyd established his own track record of success as a shipping magnate, whaling fleet owner, bank president and legislator.

Brecknock Hall was Floyd’s family residence, and leftover stone was used to build Floyd Memorial Library in Greenport Village. A recent restoration project spearheaded by the Brecknock Hall Foundation has given new life to this historic gem, Long Island’s most magnificent example of 19th century Italianate stone architecture. The transformed Brecknock is now open and available to the public as a resplendent site for weddings, celebrations, corporate retreats, cultural events and educational programs.
