    I believe this is a photo of Libmann painting by the fireplace in photos 6&7.(window on one side and door on the other) The tile looks very similar to tile creation in kitchen.

      I agree.

      Wager cash that that’s an original Maxfield Parrish “Daybreak” on the mantle. Love it and this home and the Liebmann story.

        It may be but I think the woman and girl are missing. Parrish reused the same setting for multiple prints. They are each nearly identical but he’d change minor details such as adding or removing people from the picture.

          The woman and girl are there. Enlarge the image on your phone, use a magnifying glass, squint really hard, and stare…. Worked for me. (I have a 1919 original “Rubiyat.)” 😊

    The house is likely older – its form is more typical of homes in this area dating to around 1840. The family lived at this location for 4 generations beginning in 1791.

    The Ridge Wood Farm of Martin Silas Miller (1832-1890) was part of a large tract acquired after the Revolution by his grandfather Jonathan Miller. The younger Miller was a man of influence and ran an extensive farm, best known for its breeding of fine horses. His wife, the former Mary Elizabeth Rice of Albany, was a widely published writer of children’s stories.

    Gosh that is a lot of land to tend. I wonder if current owners used the land or leased it out? What a lovely place. Thanks for the additional info, Jim. Fascinating.
