This Federal period house stands on land which was originally a part of the well-known farm of Annetje Jans, granted to her by Director General Van Twiller in 1636. After 1765, the Harrison Brewery occupied the land, hence the name Harrison Street.

The house at No. 31 Harrison Street, built in 1827 and owned originally by Jacob Ruckle, is typical of the small but comfortable dwellings of the merchant class of New York City in the early 19th Century. It was designated a New York City Landmark May 13, 1969 and was restored to original appearance in 1971-74.

I Saw The Marker

Jacob Ruckle, builder and owner of the original home, was my ancestor. A piece of my family history is also a piece of New York City history. It was a thrill to see it in person (exterior only, as home is occupied).
