Dyckman Farmhouse Museum

Dyckman Farmhouse Museum tells the story of rural Northern Manhattan, a landscape and a lifestyle that disappeared in the transformation from farming community to urban neighborhood. Through the story of the Dyckman family and farm the museum explores life in early 19th century rural Manhattan and the preservation of that memory in the early 20th century. During the city period, 1915-1916, the neighborhood was transforming and the Dyckman sisters responded by saving the farmhouse and creating the museum.
