"The genesis of my interest in Dutch Houses of the Hudson Valley Before 1776 lies in the destruction of a delightful old house in Dutchess County….when I was a small boy; for, many years later, in searching vainly for some photograph or drawing of that house I came to realize that such dwellings of the colonial period in New York as had stood until the twentieth century were fast disappearing before the march of modern civilization.”

Franklin D. Roosevelt

FDR LOVED FIELDSTONE
  • Fieldstone comes from the process of removing stones from a field while a farmer plows a field.
  • Stones can obviously cause damage to farm equipment, so it had to be removed.
  • The Dutch found it to be a great material for constructing fences and houses.
  • His friend Helen Wilkinson Reynolds wrote a book in 1928 about Dutch homes in the valley before the Revolution.
