John Jay HomesteadWhen Jay assembled his 750 acres by 1800, much of the land had already been cleared indiscriminately by tenant farmers. Stone, however, was abundant and it was put to good use. Jay spent 15 years encircling his property with stone fences and an additional decade dividing it into lots still visible in the newly reforested landscape.
