Inscription. This late 18th century home- stead stands on lot no. 10 of the 1727 Kakiat Patent. Mary Salyer, daughter of Michael Salyer and Elizabeth Mabie, inherited the house and 9 acres in 1811. Among other early owners were DeClark, Aymar and Blauvelt families. In 1966 the Spring Valley Water Co. acquired the premises adjacent to the new reservoir and in 1992 donated the house to the Town of Orangetown for use as a museum.
