The oldest house in the Mohawk Valley, the Mabee Farm Historic Site was settled by Daniel Janse Van Antwerpen, who established it as a fur trading post to meet Native American traders before they reached Schenectady. He received a deed for the property in 1671 from the English governor. In 1705, Van Antwerpen sold the western portion to Jan Pieterse Mabee, and it was handed down through the Mabee family for 287 years. The 1680 site includes a 1790 inn, 1760 New World Dutch barn, Mabee family items and farming exhibits.
