The Noxon House is an historic Georgian residence in Poughquag in Dutchess County, New York. Built in 1770 by Benjamin Noxon (born 1745), it stands along the Old Upper Road.

The Noxon House has a brick exterior, hipped roof, square, symmetrical rectangular shape, paneled front door, center decorative windows and elements on either side over front door, five double hung sash windows across the second floor front and four on the first floor, four and four paired chimneys. It preserves a typical bright and airy Georgian floor plan inside, with four over four and a center staircase ascending, another staircase descending behind it to the lower level with beautiful original timbered beam ceilings and fireplaces, a wet bar and what was the original kitchen for the house. That kitchen still retains a beehive bread oven, large fireplace and original fittings, Throughout, the Noxon House preserves its original wide plank floors, original windows and glass panes, many original moldings and doors, eight fireplaces with original surrounds and mantels and original timbers and beams.

The house is mentioned in travel accounts from the revolutionary war and early nineteenth century, including George Washington’s diary. Washington travelled often to the nearby home of his friend, Col. James Vanderburgh, who’s daughter married B. Noxon, and for whom the Noxon house was built.

A rare and beautiful piece of New York and American history, this warm and vibrant home was made for entertaining and story telling.
