A piece of overlooked American history that is well worth visiting! I have know this property for many, many years, as well as the Wyckoff- Bennett property (National Historic). We are very lucky to have these examples of Dutch Colonial life suspended in time.

Really interesting from historical perspective of early new England colonies, economical and agricultural, and consequently slavery perspectives. The staff are friendly and VERY knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Little treasure: exhibit of a late 18 century map of Brooklyn, then the third largest city!
