Dykman Farmhouse

In around 1784, William Dyckman  built what is now the oldest remaining farmhouse in Manhattan. The fieldstone and clapboard farmhouse remained in the Dyckman family until 1868. The house and remaining grounds were donated to the City in 1916. Today, the farmhouse, smokehouse, and reconstructed “Hessian Hut” are all that remain of what was once a thriving 250 acre farm.
