Queens Car Rentals and the Queens Country Farm Museum
Visit one of the oldest landmarks in Queens is the Queens County Farm Museum during your Queens car rental trip. With 47 acres of farmland this Museum exemplifies the 200-year history of agriculture as a way of life and livelihood in Queens County. The Farm Museum consists of a Dutch Farmhouse dating in part to 1772, two barns, a greenhouse complex, outbuildings, planting fiends, an orchard and farmyard with livestock. This historical site mirrors the evolution of this unique tract of land from a colonial homestead to a truck farm which served the needs of a growing city in the early 20th century and today brings history and farming to life for all Queens car rental visitors.
