21. Jay Heritage Center

Jay Heritage Center

The Jay Heritage Center is comprised of the 1883 Peter Augustus Jay House and the 1907 Van Norden Carriage House. The 23-acre property is the boyhood home of John Jay and is a stop on Westchester County’s African American Heritage Trail.

The house was designed in the Greek Revival style by Edwin Bishop for John Jay’s son on the site of his father’s childhood home. Guided tours show off the house on its history, which include connections to James Fenimore Cooper, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory, and Paleo-Indians.
