Disbrow/Greenwood/Van Siclen house

November 29th, 2014

This is the old Van Siclen (or Sicklen) house (bird's-eye view) located around the corner from the granite markers we saw earlier today. The only information I can find about the structure comes from a few old photos of it added to the collections of the New York Public Library in the 1930s. Each of the photos has a description that was filed with it. According to one of these notes, the house was "said to be about two hundred years old" in 1931, but that sounds a little questionable to me. The other two notes indicate that a Disbrow and a Greenwood owned the house before it came into the possession of Van Sicklen.
