These Gansevoorts lived in a landmark home on lower State Street. Their stables was the setting for Albany's first great fire in 1793. After that, they moved out of the city to their new country home at Whitehall.
Hester Cuyler Gansevoort lived past the death of her husband in 1810 to March 28, 1826 when she died at age seventy-seven.
