Sullivan County property recommended for historic status


ALBANY – The Hasbrouck Stone House in Fallsburg has been recommended to the State and National Registers of Historic Places.

The house was constructed around 1815 for the family of Anthony Hasbrouck, a member of one of the region’s preeminent and early settling families.

Hasbrouck, a very prominent citizen himself, was murdered in the house in 1840 in one of Sullivan County’s earliest and most notorious murder cases. He was 52.

The house is a significant example of regional vernacular stone house design.

State and National Registers listing can assist property owners in revitalizing buildings, making them eligible for various public preservation programs and services, such as matching state grants and state and federal historic rehabilitation tax credits.
