John Jay Homestead

From this vantage point, the sloping back lawn of the main house is visible. At the top of the hill and to your left, is a stone schoolhouse built between 1826 and 1828 by John Jay and his son William for William's young children. In this back lawn area, to the right of the schoolhouse is the family's pet cemetery.

Other early structures located closer to the house and to the right of this sign included a woodshed, several wells, and privies. Still visible are the foundations of two icehouses.
