This example of Dutch Colonial architecture was built between 1780-1790 by Derick Banta, soldier in the American Revolution, after his birthplace here was burned by Tories. Owned by the Quackenbush family from 1792, it was sold to Isaac Dixon in 1862, whose son Robert was Dumont's fourth Mayor. In 1929 Miss Sarah Dixon devised the homestead to the town for a public library.

Sponsored by the Old Schraalenburg Historical Society 1975.
