The Gomez Foundation for Mill House was founded in 1979. In 1984 the Foundation purchased the Gomez Mill House and established it as a public museum chartered in the State of New York. The mission of the Foundation is to preserve this unique historic house as a significant regional and national rank museum -- the oldest extant Jewish dwelling in North America continuously lived in for nearly three centuries -- and to educate the public through experiential tours and programs about the contributions of former Mill House owners to the multicultural history of the Hudson River Valley.
The Foundation Board includes direct descendents of the historic family owners and others dedicated to the restoration and preservation of Mill House and to the public’s education of the “historical significance of this irreplaceable incarnation” of the American experience.
