Historic District - New York CityThe best preserved, and considered by many the most beautiful example of Dutch Colonial architecture in Brooklyn, this dwelling is believed to have been built by Henry and Abraham Wyckoff, descendants of Pieter Wyckoff who came to this country in 1637. The house was standing in 1766, judging from an inscription found cut in a beam in the old barn. During the American Revolutionary War, Hessian officers were quartered in the house, and two of these soldiers' scratched their names and ranks on windowpanes which have been preserved. In 1835 the house was purchased by Cornelius W. Bennett and members of the Bennett family continue to live here.
