“Wonderful Dutch history near historic Schenectady Stockade”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

The Dutch house, barn and family cemetry are on a very historic site important to the 17th century settlement of the U.S. and NYS. The new interpretative center provides background information and there are interesting guided tours of the house and barn as well. Excellent exhibits and events are held in the center and on the grounds. Also visit the Stockade area of downtown Schenectady for more Dutch and English history and beautiful old homes. An annual fall house tour provides inside looks at these houses, many of which date back to the early 18th century.

“Ancient history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

One of the oldest buildings in the Mohawk Valley. There are interesting history programs at the site, craft fairs and other fun things. Sometimes they have boat rides on the Mohawk River.

“Historical fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Right next to the Mohawk River, the Mabee Farm contains a number of buildings and is constantly in use for a variety of activities, from reenactments to festivals. Check it before you go as the schedule of activities changes frequently.
