Facility:Schenectady County Historical Society
Description:This Georgian style building is in the Stockade, Schenectady's Historic District adjacent to the waters of the Binnekill and the Mohawk River. It was built in 1895 for Dora Jackson, the wife of Alonzo Clinton Jackson, and she had been a widow for many years before her son Jones Mumford Jackson bought the land on which the house is now situated. Aspects of Federal and Greek Revival can be seen throughout the house. The museum maintains wonderful collections documenting domestic and industrial life from 1690 to today including one of two pre-Revolutionary war Liberty flags known to exist.
