— Residence of George B. Cortelyou —

This residence was designed by architect Appleton P. Clark, Jr. and built in 1891 for Daniel Birtwell. In 1900, George Bruce Cortelyou occupied the house when he became secretary to President McKinley. Cortelyou continued to serve in public office as secretary to president Teddy Roosevelt, the first Secretary of Commerce and Labor, Chairman of the Republican Party, Postmaster General, and Secretary of the Treasury.

In 1909, after his public service in Washington, Cortelyou became the president of a local gas company in Manhattan, New York and for 26 years led its growth to the second largest utility company in America, Consolidated Edison.

This Plaque was placed by the owners, Mr. and Mrs. Daniel W. Mattaush, on the centennial anniversary of construction.
