John Jay Homestead

The coachman's house on your right and carriage barn on your left were built between 1801 and 1802. gated stone fences connected the two buildings and created a courtyard where the coaches and horses could be cared for and prepared for use.

The second floor of the coachman's house initially had both a hay loft and living quarters for the coachman. The lower level had stalls for Jay's carriage and riding horses and ponies.

The carriage barn accommodated the Jay's coaches, carriage horses, and tack (harnesses, bridles, etc.). Feed and hay were also stored here. Through the 1920s, a pair of large bay doors opened out into the courtyard to allow easy access for carriages. With the advent of automobiles, the carriage barn became a garage.
