Senate House Museum

The first New York State Senate met here in September and October 1777 when the building was the home of Abraham Van Gaasbeek. Built in 1676, it is the oldest public building in America.

Descendants of the original builder, Wessel ten Broeck, occupied the residence until they deeded it to New York State in 1888. The adjacent museum, built in 1927, contains the largest collection of John Vanderlyn paintings, drawings and papers in the country.

Hours: April - October Sunday 1-5pm; Wednesday - Saturday 10am - 5 pm
