The Story of Gomez Mill House
In 1714, Early American Jewish leader, Luis Moses Gomez, built a fieldstone blockhouse to conduct trade and maintain provisions on his 6500 acre property in the Mid-Hudson region as an extension of his successful enterprises in Colonial New York. From these roots and through nearly 300 years of American history, Gomez Mill House evolved as home to American Revolutionary patriot and Orange County leader, Wolfert Acker; 19th century gentleman farmer and conservationist, William Henry Armstrong; Arts and Crafts artisan and paper historian Dard Hunter; and 20th century social activist, Martha Gruening.
The Gomez Foundation for Mill House was founded in 1979. In 1984 the Foundation purchased the Gomez Mill House and established it as a public museum chartered in the State of New York. The mission of the Foundation is to preserve this unique historic house as a significant regional and national rank museum — the oldest extant Jewish dwelling in North America continuously lived in for nearly three centuries — and to educate the public through experiential tours and programs about the contributions of former Mill House owners to the multicultural history of the Hudson River Valley.
The Foundation Board includes direct descendents of the historic family owners and others dedicated to the restoration and preservation of Mill House and to the public’s education of the historical significance of this irreplaceable incarnation of the American experience.
