First Day Hike at John Jay Homestead
January 1 @ 1:00 pm–3:00 pmFree
Kick-start your New Year’s resolutions with a self-guided Historic Landscape Tour of John Jay Homestead!
John Jay began to inherit his land near Bedford, New York, in 1785, three years after his father died. He began developing the land as an income-producing farm in 1787, strictly as an investment at first. He developed it further in the late-1790s to become his home in retirement. His descendants lived into the 1950s, and as you walk around the property, you will see many features developed by the different generations of the Jay family.
Tour booklets will be available from 1:00 PM-3:00 PM in the main parking lot. Admission is free. Check www.johnjayhomestead.org after 10:00 AM for weather-related cancellation.Read or leave a comment on this story...
