Long Description:
"...one of the oldest homes in Broome County. It was built in the New England Colonial style in 1799 by an early pioneer family ...Amos and Ann Patterson. Amos was one of the investors in the Boston Purchase."
"The family lived in a log cabin along the river for several years before Amos began construction of a permanent home. For several generations their homestead was a full working farm. Patterson served as a local judge, was active in politics, and developed a new variety of apple still known as the “Patterson Sweet”."
"The name Washingtonian Hall was affixed to the house by the next owner, John Sayre, in 1840 when the great temperance movement reached the Town of Union. He was an avid advocate of removing demon rum from American shores. A society of activists for sobriety and abstinence from alcohol, called the Washingtonians, met regularly at the home, which at the time was an inn. The Washingtonians headquarters was in Washington, DC. A great deal of the traffic to the inn was by river as the forests were still dense and the roads rough and often impassible."
