Hendrick I. Lott House in Marine Park to Open to the Public for a Limited Time

Take a peek inside the longest single-family owned and occupied home in NYC.

For the first time this year, the Hendrick I. Lott House, located in Marine Park, will open its doors to the public for a limited number of interior tours as part of Archtober, a celebration of New York City’s architecture. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and a designated NYC landmark, the house gives visitors a peek at what life was like in the 1700 in New York City. If you’ve seen the house and ever wondered what it’s like inside, now’s your chance to get an exclusive look.

First constructed in 1720 and inhabited by the family of the home’s namesake until 1989, this Dutch farmhouse is unlike others in the city: the inside remains untouched, preserving a long, storied history that includes the American Revolution, the abolition of slavery, the Industrial Revolution, and the urbanization of America. As an architectural time capsule, the Hendrick I. Lott House is the perfect outing for a young history buff, especially those who are obsessed with NYC history!

Tours will be held Oct. 6, 7, 27, and 28 at 11am and 2pm. Tours cost $25, and all proceeds benefit the Friends of the Lott House, the nonprofit organization that preserves and interprets the history of the Hendrick I. Lott farmhouse.
