Much of Manorville's historic area, featuring lovely examples of 18th and 19th century residences, has been preserved. You will find this same reverence for preservation at the Robert Cushman Murphy County Park, which boasts 2,200 pristine acres in the Peconic River watershed.
Manorville's low-key atmosphere attracts year-round residents who are ready to take it easy, whether that means paddling down the Peconic to Riverhead or lounging at home. Children and grandchildren never get enough of the 300-acre Long Island Game Farm Wildlife Park, which includes a petting zoo.
The caring sensibility that Manorville is known for is evident in its extraordinary animal refuges. Just one case in point is New York Horse Rescue, which provides a refuge for horses on a 50-acre estate until an adoptive home is found. That kind of big heart is all Mannorville.
