History of Brick House Historic Museum:
Brick House is one of the great family homesteads of the Hudson Valley. Built by Nathaniel Hill in 1768, it was, undoubtedly, one of the handsomest dwellings between New York and Albany. Seven generations of the Hill family have occupied Brick House. In the 1830’s, parts of the interior were refurbished. A large wing was added at the rear. Still a later generation in 1928 added central heat and modern plumbing. Through its more than two centuries of occupancy, the Brick House has retained its beautiful rural setting, but it has evolved from a gentlemen’s farm to a country estate. Today’s visitors will find the Brick House not restored to another era, but still retaining many of the changes and improvements that seven generations have created. Original Chippendale furnishings are still in place. The result is a very unusual and special kind of museum, as lived in by Charles B. Hill, Jr. and his family.
