Details

This is the boyhood home of New York's only native Founding Father, John Jay (1745-1829), who later served as America's first chief justice of the Supreme Court and authored the Jay Treaty. Jay was also an important advocate for emancipation and served as president of the Manumission Society in New York. The estate features a fine 1838 Greek Revival style mansion, which is being restored for use as an education center, as well as a carriage barn visitor center and expansive grounds on Long Island Sound.
