From the Front Gate of the Lent-Riker-Smith Homestead
Tours - 2021
Due to the pandemic and Hurricane Ida, the Homestead will not be open for the rest of 2021.
We hope to see you in Spring 2022!
More information will be posted here at a later date.
About the Tours
Folks are free to stroll thru the garden and take photos. A diagram of the cemetery with the inscriptions of all 132 tombstones is included with the tour. A walk thru of the downstairs living quarters will be given by Mrs. Smith as well. Marionís book, The Romantic Garden, will be available for purchase.
The Homestead is the oldest private dwelling in New York City and is listed on the National Register of Historic Landmarks.
Additional displays on view include Marionís Collection of Carnival Chalkware Snow Whites, Carousel Artifacts, Broadway Theatrical Memorabilia, and, in commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of WWI, the Ascenzi Family History.
Hope to see you soon!
