Van Alstyne Homestead Society


An official Path Through History Site! This rare 18th century stone house recalls the area`s early European settlement and growth and was one of several local homes fortified against British attacks during the Revolutionary War. Operated by the Van Alstyne Homestead Society, the local landmark displays colonial era furnishings and artifacts as well as images of local historic places created by Rufus Grider, a local art teacher who helped to save the house from destruction in the late 19th century.
