Wyckoff Farmhouse Museum [NY]

Pieter Claessen Wyckoff emigrated from Holland to New Amsterdam in 1637 at the age of 17. In 1649, he brought his bride Grietje van Ness to this house, where they raised 11 children. Wyckoff House is one of New York State's oldest existing domiciles.

A second website for the site can be found here.

The site offers tours, educational programs, workshops, and occasional educational and recreational events (including living history events).
