Title

Thomas Paine Cottage Museum

Description

In 1784, a grateful New York state legislature granted to the important American revolutionary Thomas Paine a farm seized from Tory supporter. Paine lived here between 1802 and 1806, surviving one attempt upon his life. Eventually the saltbox house was moved and passed into use as a public museum.

These two images were created by R. Emmett Owen, an artist with one work part of the New Deal Gallery collection. He was painter in residence for a period beginning shortly after 1945.
