MANHATTAN: DYCKMAN FARMHOUSE, 4881 Broadway, New York. The Dyckman Farmhouse Museum is a visual treat for everyone who looks up and sees it perched above Broadway at 204th Street. The Dutch Colonial style farmhouse was built on this site by c. 1784. Opened as a museum in 1916, today it is nestled in a small garden and is an extraordinary reminder of early Manhattan and an important part of its diverse Inwood neighborhood.

Dyckman Farmhouse is the last remaining farmhouse in Manhattan. The house was built around 1784 on a rural plot of land.
