Come take a tour of these two historic properties, located adjacent to each other in rural Kinderhook. Bring a blanket and bagged lunch to enjoy a picnic on our grounds post-tour. Make the most of this family day by learning about family and school life in Columbia County in the 18th through early-20th century. Built in 1737 and designated a National Historic Landmark in 1967, the Luykas Van Alen House is a restored house museum owned and operated by the Columbia County Historical Society, which represents 18th century rural Dutch farm life. The house, featuring parapet gables, Dutch doors, and entrance stoops, stands as a testament to traditional Dutch architecture in the Hudson River Valley.
