The Museum is among the few fully furnished resident farmhouses situated in the New York Metropolitan region. In 1740, Thomas Sherwood erected this house on land leased from Frederick Philipse, and it was later acquired by Doctor John Ingersoll, Yonkers' first physician, in 1801. This three-story framed structure, built into a hillside, features an exposed basement. Furthermore, the house has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and the Yonkers Historical Society has played a significant role in preserving and restoring this landmark through contributions of furniture, artifacts, funds, and countless hours of work.

It's a true Yonkers gem the gardens are lovely and the house has amazing things original to the property when it was owned and occupied by a local doctor.
Very educational, famous and historical site in Yonkers.
