The Dutch House is a small 17th century, in which visitors will find a pewter set, an unusual cupboard, a spoon rack, a 1714 Bible, and other Dutch colonial artifacts. The Amstel House is a Georgian mansion built by the wealthy Dr. John Finney in 1730, and has operated as a historical home since 1929. Visited at one point by George Washington, today there are many decorative arts from the 18th century to be seen there. The Old Library Museum, built in 1892, offers a prime architectural attraction, and is original to the design of architect Frank Furness.
