The Bykenhulle House B&B is a 15 room Greek Revival style manor house. It was built in the early 19th century in the town of East Fishkill by Peter Adriance, a prominent silversmith. Peter was the grandson of Isaac Adriance, who emigrated from Holland and purchased the first Adriance land grant in Dutchess County from Madam Brett in 1743.
When the house was completed in 1841, it was given as a wedding present to Adriance's daughter, Mary Ann and her new husband, James Wilkinson. For more on the history, please click here.
