Situated about 8 miles north of Times Square, Broadway, Dyckman House immediately draws the visitors attention to its unique architecture among the urban steel. Dyckman House is a two-story structure with a sloping gambrel roof. Although its façade is made from brick, the rest of the house is made out of fieldstone, with the 2nd story made from white clapboard. All the floors in the house are made from wide, unvarnished floorboards.
Visitors enter Dyckman House through a central hall that leads to a farm office, a dining room and a parlor. A particularly interesting room in the house is the Relic Room, home to many artifacts and photographs that record two centuries of history of the Inwood/Broadway area. There are many objects relating to the British and German (Hessian) soldiers who camped in the area during the Revolutionary War.
Leading down to the cellar kitchen, visitors will be interested to see a Nine Man Morris game board inscribed into a large rock outcropping. It is reasonable to assume that the children of Dyckman House used this game board as entertainment. The kitchen itself is home to many wonderful period utensils such as waffle iron and pewter dishes. There is also an impressive bake oven and hearth.
The bedrooms, located on the second floor all include period furnishings for visitors to experience the house as it stood back then.
