62 Longstreet Raod
Local Dutch vernacular building traditions are illustrated in the house begun about 1754 by William Holmes, who was of Dutch and English descent. Only the symmetrical facade and a few interior details reflect mainstream Georgian architecture while the interior floor plan is made in the Dutch tradition. Fine examples of mid-18th century furnishings complement the remarkably preserved building. Every spring, in conjunction with neighboring Longstreet Farm’s sheep shearing, spinning and weaving demonstrations are offered at Homles-Hendrickson House.
