Private Tour & Reception of The Dyckman Farmhouse

If you were to take a time machine back to 18th-century Manhattan, you would come across lush forests, rolling hills, an abundance of wildlife, and small Dutch family farms scattered throughout the countryside. While most of that rural beauty has vanished thanks to 300 years of industrialization, one lone farmhouse has stood the test of time, still in its original plot on bustling Broadway.

Join New York Adventure Club for a late night tour & wine reception at the Dyckman Farmhouse — built in 1784, this Dutch Colonial style farmhouse is the last remaining one of its kind in Manhattan.

Our private experience at this hidden gem in Manhattan will include:

  • Stories around the Dyckman family, rural Northern Manhattan landscape, and a lifestyle that disappeared during the transformation from farming community to urban neighborhood
  • A private, after-hours tour through the historic rooms and garden of the 234-year-old Dyckman farmhouse
  • A wine & cheese reception in the garden, which includes a small reproduced smokehouse from 1916, a well, and a Military Hut
