About the Old Stone House
The Old Stone House is a modern reconstruction of the Vechte-Cortelyou House, a 1699 Dutch stone farmhouse with important ties to American history.
Today, the Old Stone House is operated as a historic interpretive center dedicated to its crucial role in the American Revolution and in the evolving histories of Brooklyn, New York and the United States.
The Old Stone House serves as a dynamic community resource through its education programs and events. In addition to historical exhibits open to the public, the House is available by appointment for tours, classes and rentals.
Below is a portion of My Battle Of Brooklyn Map
I "google mapped" the excellent geocache done by Alan2 at geocaching.com. This is Phase 5 of the Battle. It has 5 stops. I've supplemented the geocache with slide show movies I made and other resources on the Battle of Brooklyn as well as other events in Brooklyn history.
The markers are set at approximate locations. Also note slide shows are downloadable (just wait until it fully loads and use "control click" on a mac). The automatic timed slide shows can also be paused at any time by clicking on the movie. A double click will then resume it.
As of late I have added many other Brooklyn history resources, including information on the historic Dutch homesteads (these have the yellow house icon). Much of that information comes from www.bklyn-genealogy-info.com
