About the Owner

T: 917-533-4141

I am an artist who settled in Buskirk in the early 1970s, after graduating from Bennington College, which is located nearby in Vermont. I was drawn to this area by the beauty of its historic farmsteads and its open space. Over the years, besides painting, I became involved in conserving agricultural land and the rural landscape. Another passion of mine has been restoration.

I purchased the Buskirk School House in 2014 in order to preserve it as it was in total disrepair. Built originally prior to 1815, I felt it was an important structure to save, also because it was near my home. There was a long process of dismantling and reconstructing it. Furnishing and decorating it also took time. I’m pleased and proud to report the completion of the project in late summer of 2020.

The fields surrounding the School House are owned by me and have all been conserved, meaning that the land can only be used for agriculture and cannot be subdivided for housing.
