This property on lot 13 in the 1727 division of the Kakiat Patent was part of the DeClark farm from which the name Clarkstown originated.

In August 1780 General Washington and his troops encamped here on an ancient Indian village site. In 1880 the first train of the fledgling New York & Albany Railroad crossed the farm land below where a station platform was built.
