About our Talking About Race Matters Lecture Series:
One of the most important topics throughout history and in recent months, is the topic of race. Given current events covered in the news, we at the Dyckman Farmhouse Museum feel that it is important to have and to facilitate conversations on race, even though they can be challenging. Because of this, we have put together a series of talks with experts, each looking at the topic of race from a different perspective. Our hope is that we can all come together, learn from one another, and to continue the conversation. We hope that you will join us!

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.
