Nearly two miles of trails and romantic vistas designed by Hans Jacob Ehlers. It’s called Poets’ Walk in honor of Washington Irving and other authors who reportedly walked here.
John Jay was one of America’s Founding Fathers—he was also President of the Continental Congress, U.S. Secretary for Foreign Affairs, first Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, and the second governor of New York State. Construction started on his home in 1799 and Jay moved there in 1801. Today the historic site sits on 62 acres, which feature 19-century farm buildings and formal gardens.
