The main wing of this house was built in 1808 by Benjamin P. Westervelt who served in the local militia during the Revolution. The site of this house has been continuously owned by the Westervelt family since early colonial times. General Erskine's maps show a Westervelt home on this site in 1778. A fine example of the Dutch Colonial style, it served as a background in some early moving pictures.
