An official Path Through History Site! Built in the 1780s by Pieter Lefferts, who served in the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War and was later appointed to a judgeship in Kings County, the Lefferts family lived in the house until 1918, when they donated it to the City with the condition that it be moved to Prospect Park. The house, which is managed by the Prospect Park Alliance, is a family-oriented environmental history museum that interprets Brooklyn`s changing environment through the eyes of its Dutch, African American and Native American inhabitants.
