An official Path Through History Site! Nestled in the Westchester countryside in the hamlet of Katonah is the John Jay Homestead Historic Site, 62 acres encompassing the home and farm of John Jay (1745-1829), one of America's Founding Fathers. Jay co-authored the Treaty of Paris, which ended the Revolutionary War, and the Federalist Papers, which aided ratification of the U.S. Constitution. The site includes formal gardens, woodland walks, rolling meadows, and a cluster of 19th century farm buildings, including an 1820s' schoolhouse and an 1830s' barn.
