Inscription.  Kingsland House was built c. 1785 for Quaker farmer Charles Doughty. The name "Kingsland" derives from Doughty's son-in-law, English sea captain Joseph King, who bought the house in 1801. Characterized by a full two stories, wide side-hall plan, gambrel roof, and central chimney, the house is a well-scaled and proportioned example of the indigenous Long Island half-house form, which flourished locally in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Threatened by demolition, the house was relocated to its present site in 1968.
