Built in 1709, the Vander Ende Onderdonk House is the oldest fieldstone Dutch Farmhouse in NYC. Long a major New York City landmark – it marked the boundary between the towns of Newtown and Bushwick in 1769 and now marks the boundary between Queens and Brooklyn – the Vander Ende Onderdonk House reflects the cultural history of the area from the Lenape homeland to a surprising link to the Apollo space program.

Tours will be self-guided, and Uni-guide tours are available via cell phone. Families can also complete a historical scavenger hunt. The Vander Ende Onderdonk House is located on 1.5 acres of open space featuring gardens, fruit trees, and picnic areas with views of Manhattan.

There is an ADA compliant restroom. Only the first floor of the museum is accessible for wheelchairs. There is no elevator. The museum grounds are grass and uneven surfaces.

The health and safety of our community is paramount. Proof of COVID-19 vaccination with ID and a mask is required for ALL in-person experiences. See guidelines: https://ohny.org/covid-19-update/
