Offered At

Wyckoff House Museum

The Wyckoff House Museum preserves, interprets, and operates New York City’s oldest building and its surrounding 1.5 acres of farmland. Through innovative educational and farm-based programs we build cultural and agricultural connections within our community, emphasizing immigration, family, food, and community through history. During field trips to the farmhouse, students learn about the history of the site through inquiry, exploration, and hands-on activities.
