Tour an early 1800's home with many original features including a summer kitchen. A one-room museum holds memorabilia from Middletown and surrounding areas and a Genealogy Library is available for research.
Our mission is to develop interest in and preserve the history of
the Middletown Valley.
This property is part of the original "Smithfield" settlement which, in 1766, was purchased by Michael Jesserong and renamed "Middletown." The following year, Jesserong sold the lot on which this building stands to Conrad Crone, who then acquired the remainder of Jesserong's holdings and became Middletown's "developer."
In 1820, Peter Young purchased the eastern portion of the lot for
$350, and, 20 years later, built the present house from stone quarried on his farm north of town. This house is one of the oldest stone structures still standing within the town limits.
