Gomez Mill House


In 1714, Early American Jewish leader, Luis Moses Gomez, purchased 1,000 acres in Newburgh New York and subsequently, with his two sons Jacob and Daniel, accumulated a total of 4,000 acres. There he built a fieldstone blockhouse to conduct trade and maintain provisions in the Mid-Hudson region as an extension of his successful enterprises in Colonial New York. From these roots and through 300 years of American history, Gomez Mill House evolved as home to American Revolutionary patriot and Orange County civic leader, Wolfert Ecker; 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.
