A Virtual Path through Dutch Heritage at NYC’s Historic Houses

Scattered across the five boroughs, NYC’s historic house museums tell the diverse stories of those who built our great city. Many themes tie these unique places together, but one of the most significant is the legacy of the Dutch colonists who settled New Netherland. 

The Dutch legacy lives on in many intangible ways, including in local cultural traditions and the names of neighborhoods and waterways. But preserved in the historic sites featured on this virtual trail are some of the most tangible examples of Dutch heritage that survive in New York City. 

Let’s Get Started

Embark on this virtual heritage trail to get a taste of the distinctive architecture and interiors that were built, or were influenced by, the Dutch.

Together, they provide a compelling portrait of the lasting Dutch influence in New York City, hiding in plain sight and waiting to be unearthed.
