Notes
Survey number HABS NY-5664
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-354).
Significance: The Haskell House is an unusual, perhaps unique, early 18th century structure. Probably built in 1720s, the house is architecturally significant for both its early date and the techniques employed in its construction. The original section of the house is built of square-cut logs laid horizontally to the second floor plate. Above this level, it has a heavy timber frame infilled with clay plaster on handsplit lath. This combination of construction techniques was unusual in the Colonies and probably unprecedented in this area of the Hudson River Valley. The adaptation of log construction to so large and formal a house is also extraordinary. Despite additions, alterations, and a long period of neglect, the house remains with much original fabric intact.
