Take Candlelight Tour Of Historic Jacob Blauvelt House In New City

NEW CITY, N.Y. -- There will be Holiday Candlelight Tours of the Jacob Blauvelt House in New City on upcoming Sundays, Dec. 13, 20, and 27, and Jan. 10; at 5 p.m. and 6:30 p.m, with seasonal decorations by Katelyn Triola of John Mini Distinctive Landscapes.

The Jacob Blauvelt House was built in 1832. Its gambrel roof, overhanging eaves, and compact size reflect the style of the rapidly disappearing 18th-century Dutch houses in the region. The dwelling’s main section, kitchen outbuilding, and later connecting common room were constructed by farmer Jacob Blauvelt. Blauvelt’s descendants lived in the house until 1970, when it was acquired by the Historical Society of Rockland County.

First-floor rooms have been restored to reflect Jacob Blauvelt’s occupancy and feature period wallpapers and floor coverings, as well as Greek Revival woodwork and early 19th-century furnishings made in the lower Hudson Valley. The rebuilt kitchen is used for demonstrations of open-hearth cooking while the 19th-century barn complex contains farm tools, sleighs and a complete blacksmith shop.

The Jacob Blauvelt House is at 20 Zukor Road, New City. For more information, call (845)-634-9629 or visit here .
