Inscription.
The easterly section of this Dutch farmhouse was constructed by John Paul in the early 19th Century. Soon after the similar westerly addition was added resulting in a rare style of twin front door entrances. The structure, a frame of sawn heavy timber with a clapboard and sandstone exterior, was plastered on the interior and insulated with mud and straw. Successive branches of the Paul, Jones and Schueler families lived here for approximately two centuries. Clarkstown acquired it in 1990 and restored it in 1996.
Town of Clarkstown † 1997

 
Erected 1997 by The Historical Society of Rockland County.
