Designated March 23, 1976

The Elias Hubbard Ryder House is located in Gravesend, one of the six original townships of Kings County. The house is a typical early-nineteenth-century Dutch Colonial farmhouse, distinguished by a projecting roof eave that may initially have acted as an overhang to protect the masonry walls from rain and snow. The vernacular structure was built on land inherited by Elias Hubbard Ryder, a member of a prominent Gravesend family; the family inhabited the house until 1966.

“I don’t know what the City would be without HDC. [They] testified before LPC time after time and helped us focus on the right issues. We would not be an historic district without HDC! ”

“Use HDC as a resource because they know what they are doing and can offer advice on how to go about creating a district from every front: architectural, political, LPC, and the media. I had floundered prior to my involvement with this invaluable organization.”

“HDC provided guidance and shared information during that process—we knew which Council members were going one way or another and we changed a few minds. I don’t think NoHo would have had as cohesive a district had it not been for HDC’s aid.”

“I remember Richard saying at a meeting, we have someone here from HDC, Nadezhda Williams, Director of Preservation and Research, to help us. She said to us, ‘You are not the only ones going through this.’ HDC included us in an enormous community”
