Discover New York's Dutch heritage at the country estate of Casparus Francis Pruyn (1792-1846). Along with his job as land and business agent for Stephen Van Rensselaer, the last Dutch Patroon, Mr. Pruyn used this land as his summer home and working farm. Dutch ambiance radiates throughout this classic beautifully restored house (ca. 1830), a blend of Federal and Greek revival architecture. In days of old the wide entrance and hallway were used to accommodate guests at large parties. This country manor is filled with period furniture and changing exhibits.
