Grateful Dead Tribute Music & Crafts Festival On the Great Lawn at Harmony Hall – Jacob Sloat House Sloatsburg, NY July 30th

Published

on

Sloatsburg, NY – Harmony Hall – Jacob Sloat House was added to the New York State and National Registers of Historic Places in 2006. Born in 1792, Jacob Sloat married Sarah Bigelow Hollenbeck in December 1826 and, together, they had nine children; five of whom died before the age of four. Jacob Sloat was only 23 years old when he built his first local mill in 1815-1816.

 Sloat had gained a reputation as an inventor, industrialist and entrepreneur, producing as much as 8,000 pounds per week of the cotton twine that dominated the New York market, supported a thriving village and made Jacob Sloat a wealthy man. He began construction of a magnificent new home in 1846 ~ an avant-guard Greek Revival gem that he may have designed himself with the help his friend Jasper Cropsey, who was both an accomplished artist and student of architecture.

In the summer of 1848, Jacob Sloat and his family moved into the newly-constructed Harmony Hall. When he died less than a decade later in 1857, the house passed into the hands of his wife Sarah and, in 1861, it was purchased from the widow by the couple’s 23-year-old son, Henry. 

Today, the magnificent home built in the heart of New York State’s historic Ramapo Pass is raising nearly the same level of excitement in the tiny village that it prompted more than 160 years ago when the Jacob Sloat family crossed the newly-painted threshold for the first time. 

This stately home once again welcomes visitors on a limited basis, offering a wide range of arts and educational programming. Harmony Hall is expected to serve as the cultural center of western Rockland County – welcoming visitors to a region renown for its natural beauty, magnificent parks and significant contribution to American history.

There are limited hourly tours of the Harmony Hall – Jacob Sloat House for a $5.00 donation, not included in your ticket price.
