About Jay Heritage Center

Location:

210 Boston Post Road, Rye, NY 10580, US

Mission Statement

The Jay Heritage Center's (JHC) mission is to preserve, protect and interpret the National Historic Landmark home of American Founding Father John Jay as an educational center and community resource.

Description

The Jay Heritage Center, is a not-for-profit organization located in Rye, NY that owns and manages 2 educational venues: the 1838 Greek Revival Jay Mansion and the 1907 Van Norden/Talcott Carriage House. On July 9, 2013, JHC was further entrusted with the stewardship and management of an additional 21.5 acres of public parkland known as the Jay Estate - JHC operates this historic property through a public/private partnership with New York State Parks and Westchester County Parks.

Our goal, as an educational center and heritage tourism destination, is to share with the public the stories of the inhabitants of the Jay property and illustrate the ongoing preservation process of the buildings and grounds incorporating sustainable solutions (like our geothermal heating and cooling system and conservation of energy.) We offer a full calendar of programs about American History, Architecture, Social Justice and Environmental Stewardship.

We are a member site of the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area for our themes of Architecture, Environment and Freedom and Dignity. We are also listed on New York State's Path Through History as an important place to study the history of Civil Rights in America because of John Jay's efforts to abolish slavery.
