Where

This historic stone house in Hurley, New York was built in 1723 by Jan Van Deusen. After the Burning of Kingston, New York State’s fledgling government made the dining room of this house their Senate Chamber from November 18th to December 17, 1777 because the living room was too cold. Confined at this house for a period was Cadwallader Colden, Jr. the noted Tory. Today, the house is an antique shop.

Jan Van Deusen, Jr. inscribed his initials on the house when he inherited it in 1744
