It is situated on land that Wouter van Twiller purchased from the local Lenape people in approximately 1636.  ( Europeans often referred to the native inhabitants simply by the Lenape language place name for the larger area: "Canarsie", in this case. :32–33) The house was one of several ordered built by Wouter van Twiller before he was recalled to Holland by 1640. The house is estimated to have been built ca. 1652,  making it one of the oldest surviving examples of a Dutch frame house in America, and it was one of the first structures built by Europeans on Long Island. The majority of the current structure was added in the 19th century, with the small kitchen section dating back to the 18th century.
