West Neck Road Historic District house

The West Neck Road Historic District consists of 26 buildings with many residences dating to the 18th through 20th centuries. The district is located along West Neck Road, which connects Huntington with Lloyd Harbor. Perhaps the oldest structure in the district is the Week House, dating back to 1750, as well as three early 19th century homes: the Ketchum House, Douglas Conklin House, and Conklin House. The Conklin House was one of the first museums on Long Island, named for David Conklin, a British prisoner.

West Neck Road also includes Elm Cottage, one of the first Gothic Revival structures in Huntington. Most of the residences were constructed between 1860 and 1900, generally with asymmetrical plans and some in the Victorian style. Most feature bay windows, wraparound porches, and other picturesque architectural details.
