Bronck House, also known as Pieter Bronck House, is a Dutch homestead house in Coxsackie in Greene County, New York that was constructed in 1663 and added to later. It is the oldest structure in upstate New York.
A stone house was built first, by Pieter Bronck, of the family for whom the Bronx was named, who bought the property from native Americans. The house is reputed to be the location where the Coxsackie Declaration of Independence was signed, more than a year before the Continental Congress signing in 1776.
