    The features and decoration are Italianate, though the form is New England Large, and the lack of hipped roof and wide bracketed eaves gives the house a vernacular Folk Victorian feel as well.

    I love this place! The home of Peter Harris Dick (1834-1923) was built on the farm owned by his early German family since colonial times, originally 500 acres. Dick became an engineer and maintained the fleet of the Cornell Steamboat Company at Manhattan, then retired to look after his fruit orchard on 93 acres here. His son Albert also worked on the riverboats and took over the farm from his father. The house and local environs don’t look all that much different than when they were here about 100 years ago.
