Pieter Pieterson Ostrander and his wife Rebecca bought the property for this house in 1699. The house began as a single room cottage probably not long afterwards, but by 1708 an addition was added. During the Revolutionary War, the house served as a tavern and on November 16, 1782, George Washington was given a reception here during his journey to Kingston. During the mid 1800s, Abe Houghtaling owned the house and added a section to the left of the house, where he ran his wagon making shop.
