William Floyd Estate: Old Mastic House
The House at Mastic
The culturally preserved Old Mastic House today features 25 furnished rooms that highlight the continuous occupancy of the Floyd family from their earliest days in Mastic to the modern times of 1976. The house showcases a variety of architectural styles from old to new.
By the 1930s Cornelia Floyd Nichols inherited and enlarged the house, and expanded the northwest wing to accommodate a modern kitchen and pantry. Cornelia and her family were among the last lineal descendants of Richard Floyd to live in the house. By 1976 they gave their beloved Old Mastic House over to the recently established Fire Island National Seashore to preserve and protect it forever.
