In 1798 Hendrick Van Orden, owner of a sandstone house on this site, sold the house and surrounding farm to Dr. Abraham Cornelison, who lived here 51 years. He became the first president of the Rockland County Medical Society in 1829. Isaac Pye purchased the premises in 1858 and may have built the present home. In 1894 Julius and Herman G. Kretschmar established a floriculturist business here, continued by the family until 1979
