Where

This historic house in Coeymans, New York was built circa 1716 by Ariaanje Coeymans (1672-1743). Ariaanje,  the daughter of town founder, Barent Coeymans, inherited a portion of her father’s estate upon his death in 1716 and began building what was the most impressive house in the area. Noteworthy for its size and elegance, Ariaanje moved into the house and soon married David Verplanck, but it was an unhappy marriage with Verplanck being 23 years her junior.

Besides Ariaanje historic house,  the property also has archaeological remains of mills and outbuildings.
