An official Path Through History Site! Visit the Mohawk Valley's oldest standing home for a taste of Colonial-era hospitality. The Mabee Farm Historic Site was settled by Daniel Janse Van Antwerpen, who established it as a fur trading post to meet Native American traders before they reached Schenectady. He received a deed for the property in 1671 from the English governor. In 1705, Van Antwerpen sold the western portion to Jan Pieterse Mabee, and it was handed down through the Mabee family for 287 years. Enjoy tours, farm exhibits, hands-on workshops and special events at this 300+ year-old Dutch farmstead museum on the banks of the Mohawk River. The historic farmstead overlooking the Mohawk River includes the Main House, the family's Inn, a 1760's Dutch Barn, historic gardens, and more.
