Learn how a family of 13 lived in a single-room house through storytelling, inquiry, artifact investigation, images, and hands-on activities. Explore the restored home of Pieter Claesen Wyckoff and bring to life what the daily experience in colonial Nieuw Amersfoort was like.
The Wyckoff House Museum preserves, interprets, and operates New York City’s oldest building and it’s 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.
We are in school district 18.
