Friends of John Jay Homestead and New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation actively engage in large-scale projects on a regular basis. Please visit us often to stay informed of our latest projects and progress.

House Restoration Project

The House Restoration Project encompasses a full restoration of 11 period rooms, Iselin Wing, Back Parlor Exhibit Gallery, and Summer Kitchen Discovery Center. We are addressing capital restoration needs, conservation of objects, and additions to the collection based upon our furnishing plan. In addition, we are in the process of re-focusing the interpretive story and highlighting the collections in a new way to help tell the story of John Jay, his life, legacy and accomplishments.
