The Cleveland House

The Cleveland House property (located at the corner of Rt. 245 & Main Street, Naples) includes a colonial home and Carriage House (now a Quilt Shop).

The House was built by Captain Ephraim Cleveland, a Revolutionary War officer, in 1794. The house was one of the first frame homes in the village, and is today almost as it was in 1794.

This house is noted for its excellent wall stenciling, the work of Stephen Clark, the son of Major Joseph Clark and grandson of Col. William Clark. Stephen was Naples’ first college graduate and was the author of the widely used Clark’s Grammar. The building is on the 'Register of Historic Places' and is currently used as a House Museum. 

• Visitation by small groups and special tours may be possible by special arrangement. Please contact NHSNYinfo@gmail.com to express interest.
