Built in 1758 near the old Boston Post Road, linking Boston and New York, this Georgian home was lived in by a blacksmith (Valentine) and later a butcher (Varian) and was so near fighting in the Revolution that its first owner was forced to abandon it. Now home to the Museum of Bronx History. Focuses on early NY history, from Indian, Dutch, through Revolution.
