John Jay HomesteadWhen John Jay began planning his Westchester farm in the 1790s, he was fortunate to find a source of clay on his property which he used to make the brick for constructing a home and various farm buildings. Archeological testing has identified the manufacturing site where the bricks were formed, dried, stacked, and baked in kilns. During testing, the site of a temporary camp for Native Americans, which existed well before the arrival of European settlers, was located.
