Details

The King Manor Museum in Jamaica, Queens preserves the home of Rufus King, an outspoken opponent of slavery who was a member of the Continental Congress, a framer and signer of the Constitution and one of the first senators from New York State. King delivered two of the most radical and eloquent anti-slavery speeches heard in the Senate before the Civil War, and his eldest son, Governor John Alsop King, continued the family`s work to restrict slavery`s expansion.
