The Frisbee House


The 1797 Frisbee House stands as the cornerstone of the Delaware County Historical Association in Delhi, NY. The grounds surrounding the historical association also include the original barns, a one-room schoolhouse, and the Frisbee family cemetery.

Built by Gideon Frisbee (1758-1828), the Frisbee House has served as an inn and tavern, a courthouse, and the meeting place for the first Delaware County board of supervisors meeting in 1797.

Over its two hundred year existence, the building has bore witness to many important historical events. However, it has also experienced its fair share of heartbreak. It appears that tragedy and loss may reverberate through time at the historic home, and both visitors and staff have reported a number of unsettling and unexplainable experiences.
