  • New York Dutch Room, Bethlehem, New York, 1751
    Emily Crane Chadbourne Trust, 2003 (NYDR.2003.1)

    This isometric drawing of the Winne Houses frame indicates the arrangement of the anchor-bent system typical of houses built in communities settled by the Dutch.

    The clapboard exterior of the Winne House was not painted but the doors, shutters, and window muntins were coated with a distinctive palette of red, blue, and white found on Dutch houses in the upper Hudson River Valley.
