This former home Sue Ellen and Garin Sheeley and their six lively children in the 1970s and 80s, the historic brick house originally belonged to Isaac Hasbrouck in the 1830s until his death in 1852. The house was then occupied by his relatives until it was sold in 1882 to attorney, Alvah Newcomb. It is reported that Mr. Newcomb made extensive renovations to the “old brick house,” including a large and elegant addition; predicting “when all work thereon is completed it will be one of the finest residences in this village.” (May 3, 1883 The Kingston Journal and Weekly Freeman).
We invite our guests to read more about The Sheeley House’s history in the binder found in one of our reading rooms.
Now with many more stories over a century later, the Sheeleys have made their own befitting renovations to the “old brick house” and we believe that our guests will find it a very charming home to visit.
The Sheeley House cannot be classified as one particular style or time period. Although it is a tasteful blend of several styles it still captures much of the dignity and interest of Mr. Newcomb’s vision. While this house is indeed stately and elegant, we think our guests will find it comfortable and welcoming. Our house is most beautiful when people are here to enjoy it.
