Wyckoff House


Wyckoff House is a National Historic Landmark typifying the farmhouse architecture of the Dutch-American farms of Brooklyn and Queens. It is New York City’s only surviving structure from the period of Nieuw Amersfoort.

The Wyckoff Farmhouse Museum was originally a Dutch West India Company farm, used by Pieter Wyckoff on his arrived in the New Netherlands in 1637. After serving an indenture he became a successful magistrate and farmer. He and wife Grietjie had eleven children, resulting in over fifty thousand descendants. Some of these enlarged and altered the house and continued to farm the land until 1901. In 1965 the house became the first structure to be designated a New York City Landmark.

Extensively restored, it opened to the public in 1982.
