Description 

Built in three stages, this manor house illustrates the architectural development of Dutch Colonial dwellings from the earliest periods of settlement to the years immediately following the American Revolution. The first section, of stone, was built in 1663; the second, of brick, was added in 1738; and the last, a stone rear wing, was built in 1792. The house was presented to the Greene County Historical Society in 1938 and is now open as an historic house museum. -- National Historic Landmark statement of significance, December 24, 1967
