            ountry House Bed & Breakfast operated in an historic home, dating back to early America. The white clapboard portion of the house was built circa 1790. The original owner is recorded to have voted in the Queensbury election of 1786. The brick portion was built in several stages circa 1810 by a young professional from New York City for a summer home. There is a variety of joining styles in the brickwork, as the young bachelor brought different masons with him each time he travelled north to work on the house. The original stone walls surrounding the property were built in the 1830’s by the first African American pastor in the Methodist Episcopal Church’s Troy Conference, George S. Brown. The home has been owned by several families throughout its history. The Alexander family completely renovated the home while preserving its historic value. It was sold in 2023.
