The Isaac Pye house is situated at what
was long ago the intersection of two Indian trails and later became the important crossroads called Pye's Corners.
The house was built in the mid-nineteenth century, with roof and dormers typical of the large frame farm houses in
the area. Isaac's ancestor, David Pye, came from England in 1757. Settling in Clarkstown, he became well-known both
as a lawyer and surveyor, and held numerous government posts. Pye's Corners became the hub of much that went on in the
farming community that was Clarkstown.
