The oldest structure in New York State, it's a microcosm of local history. The skillfully restored farm house is interpreted by an outstanding group of paid staff and volunteer docents -- all of whom are highly knowledgeable about colonial and modern history. An unusually vivid experience of local history.

It's not easy to reach, but well worth the trip. As a tour guide, I have taken several groups there, and none have been disappointed.
