The Wyckoff Farmhouse


The Wyckoff Farmhouse was constructed c. 1652 and its first occupant, was an East Frisian man from the village of Norden in Germany who immigrated during the period of Dutch rule and continued to live in the home after the English takeover. 


He was the progenitor of one of the most prolific families in American history and this house is now the oldest in NYC and last remaining piece of architecture from New Netherland. 


We have a variety of educational programming throughout the year and host a number of public events tied to Dutch, German, and colonial American culture.
