4. The coach house, greenhouse, and chicken house surrounding the mansion no longer exist

Exterior of Litchfield Villa.
The villa alone remains in prospect park.

When Davis built the estate, it expanded over 50 acres. This meant that the property Litchfield owned could contain more than just his extensive villa. Other than the villa, Davis built a coach house, a greenhouse, and a chicken house. During this era, much of Brooklyn consisted of farmland.

These buildings no longer exist, however. Nevertheless, Prospect Park visitors can visit the zoo at the opposite end of the park in lieu of spending time with Litchfield’s chickens. Despite the absence of Davis’ additional structures, other aspects of farm culture still exist at Litchfield Villa.
