The Valentine-Varian House was built in 1758, when carriages traveled the nearby Boston Post Road through a Bronx that was still mostly farmland. The second oldest house in the borough stands today inside a wrought-iron fence in a small park in the Norwood neighborhood of north-central Bronx. The two-story fieldstone home was built by Isaac Valentine, a blacksmith and farmer who bought the parcel of land from the Dutch Reformed Church. The house then stood one block south across Bainbridge Avenue. During the Revolutionary War, Valentine and his family had to abandon their home, which was occupied by British, Hessian and American troops. Though close to several fierce battles with cannons clustered on a nearby hill, the house miraculously survived.
