Hendrick I. Lott House Exclusive Tours
Saturday, October 6, 2018
2:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m.
This event repeats every day between 10/6/2018 and 10/7/2018.
The Hendrick I. Lott House, constructed in 1720 and 1800, is a living time capsule of New York City’s past. Still closed to the public, get a sneak peek at the interior of the Lott House before interior renovation begins.
The interior of this vernacular Dutch-American farmhouse reflects Hendrick I. Lott’s skill as a professional house carpenter in New York City’s Collect District at the end of the 18th century. It also demonstrates the wealth of generations of the Lott family. Once one of the largest farms in southern Brooklyn, the house still sits on its original orientation. The property was owned and actively occupied by the Lott family from 1719 to 1989. In 2002, New York City purchased the property from the Lott family.
Closed to the public, this tour is a rare opportunity to view the interior of the Lott House.
These tours are being offered by Friends of the Lott House in celebration of Archtober. The Hendrick I. Lott House is a Historic House Trust member house. The Historic House Trust is partnering with Archtober to celebrate architecture month in NYC.
