Abraham Hasbrouck House, 94 Huguenot Street, New Paltz, Ulster County, NY

description

Summary

Significance: Built in three phases between 1721 and 1741, the Abraham Hasbrouck House is a very early example of the stone house type that distinguishes Ulster County architecture. The house also represents the transformation of Dutch architecture in the Hudson Valley as earlier urban house forms with front gables were giving way to the side-gable forms with facades on their long sides that came to characterize regional houses in the 18th century. Organized in 1677, New Paltz was laid out in the last town plan to appear in the Hudson Valley and the Abraham Hasbrouck House is an illustration of the emergence of a rural American architecture from its Dutch antecedents.
