The structure was erected in 1896 as the farmhouse to the Vanderbilt estate. Re-named Hosack Farm, the property is the largest surviving part of the former Vanderbilt Farm. The restored house and carriage house (under renovation) has an heirloom orchard and many landscape features from the Gilded Age.
The history and restoration is chronicled at the Hosak Farm website .
