More than 200 years after it was built, John Jay’s original Carriage Barn has been given new life as the Homestead’s Education & Visitor Center. Open daily May through October, the Carriage Barn hosts interactive, educational exhibits; a 12-minute biographical video about John Jay and his accomplishments; our premier hands-on Discovery Center; a gift shop; and a reading room. Please note that at this time we can only accept cash and check for gift shop purchases.
The Carriage Barn Education & Visitor Center, a $1.4 million project, is a proud addition to the list of restored outbuildings made possible through the efforts of Friends of John Jay Homestead and its partnership with New York State. Click HERE to download a history of the Carriage Barn.
