We just wanted to share one of the murals from the Hyde Park, New York Post Office. This and other illustrations like it are available for viewing on our Illustrations page.
- Description: Before 1741. Jacobus Stoutenburgh, his sons, and slaves clear the land. His log cabin, built in 1723, was the first house in Hyde Park Village. The Kings Highway, then a grassy “waggon” road, passed in front. Jacobus and his wife Margaret Teller had eight children who varied in age in 1741 from 23 year old Tobias to 5 year old Luke.
- Artist: Olin Dows, of Rhinebeck, NY, was a neighbor and family friend of Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
- Location: Hyde Park, NY
