The Suydam House was built at intersection of Evergreen Avenue (then called New Bushwick Lane) and Woodbine Street. It was a strong, Dutch style home. Armbruster theorizes that it was probably built in the early 18th century, as it was considered an old house in 1760 when it was purchased by Jacob Suydam. During the Revolutionary War, it was used by the British troops as their winter quarters.
