Gysbert’s Inventory: A Reflection of 1665 Dutch Life

The legacy of the Dutch settlers of Wiltwyck lives on at the Matthewis Persen House.  The house was originally owned by Gysbert Van Imbroch, a barber-surgeon. An inventory listing Gysbert’s possessions at the time of his death in 1665 is brought to life through illustrations of clothing, kitchen items, medical supplies, books and other articles used in 17th century daily life. Step back in time with Gysbert’s Inventory. This exhibit was made possible through a grant awarded to the Ulster County Clerk’s Office from the New York State Archives.
