Discover NY's Dutch heritage at the country estate of Casparus Francis Pruyn (1792-1846). Along with his job as land and business agent for Stephen Van Rensselaer, the last Dutch Patroon, Mr. Pruyn used this land as his summer home and working farm. Dutch ambiance radiates throughout this classic beautifully restored house (ca. 1830), a blend of Federal and Greek revival architecture. The vast center hall with elegant winding staircase welcomes you. In days of old the wide entrance and hallway were used to accommodate guests at large parties. This country manor is filled with period furniture and changing exhibits. As you stroll the estate's five and one-half acres, follow the red brick walk to the large picturesque Buhrmaster Barn built with hand-hewn beams and wooden pegs and crowned with a cupola. Vibrant herb and perennial gardens grace the grounds that are landscaped with brick walks, picket fences, and a pergola. A visit to the tool museum/privy, smokehouse, potting shed, and carriage house complete your tour.
