John Jay Homestead

When 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.

Thousands of bricks, created in the southern end of this field between 1787 and 1801, were used to construct John Jay's farm buildings and residence.
