Take a guided tour of the Jacob Blauvelt House! The Blauvelts came to the New World from Holland in the early 1600s. In 1741, Jacob's great-grandfather bought the land in New City on which the Historical Society of Rockland County's facilities now stand. When Jacob built the house in 1832, it sat on 100 acres of farmland, with a barn, a carriage house, sheds for tools and animals, a woodlot, an orchard garden, an herb garden, and a vegetable garden. The tour explores the lives of the Blauvelts, a middle-class farm family, and their 1830s home as it evolved over successive generations from 1832 until 1907. Many of the furnishings are original to the family; the rest are from the HSRC's outstanding collection of Lower Hudson Valley pieces. Tours are available on Sundays at 1, 2 and 3 pm, April through November.
