Gomez Mill House

As the oldest surviving Jewish-owned dwelling in the country, the House will educate groups about the role American Jews played as pioneers in American history, and about the contributions of five former Mill House owners to the Hudson River Valley. Guided tours of the preserved house highlight Colonial Jewish American life through the Gomez family, as well as America’s Revolutionary period, 18th century Hudson Valley, the Arts and Crafts movement, and social activism. The mill’s educational experience will challenge visitors to re-evaluate how they see the cultural landscape of history!
