John Jay Homestead State Historic Site [NY]
The John Jay Homestead State Historic Site maintains the 1801 home of Founding Father John Jay who served as the first Chief Justice of the Supreme court and co-authored the Treaty of Paris, among his many other accomplishments. The home is interpreted as an 1820's country home with 12 or its 24 rooms decorated and open to the public for tours.
Specialized tours and education programs are available by appointment. School groups may also tour the 1820's schoolhouse and the 1830s barn as wells as the formal gardens on the property.
