Self-Guided Historic Landscape Tours
Saturday, May 1, 2021 until Monday, May 31, 2021
John Jay Homestead State Historic Site
(914) 232-5651

John Jay began to inherit his land near Bedford, New York in 1785, three years after his father died. He began developing the land as an income-producing farm in 1787, strictly as an investment at first. He developed it further in the late 1790s, to become his home in retirement. His descendants lived into the 1950s, and as you walk around the property, you will see many features developed by the different generations of the Jay family. Self-guided historic landscape tour booklets are available for download from our website http://johnjayhomestead.org/explore/historic-landscape-and-farm/ and at the Carriage Barn Education & Visitor Center. The grounds of John Jay Homestead are open daily from sunrise to sunset. Free admission.
