The Bodine Farmhouse is located on Wallkill Road just outside the village of Walden in the Town of Montgomery, Orange County, New York, USA. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2006.

History[edit]

The Bodine Farmstead was possibly built in 1769 by William Bodine, the grandson of Jean Bodine, but the record of his birth has not been found. He was granted a large tract of land of over 3,000 acres in the Town of Montgomery, outside the village of Walden, and his homestead was built in 1769 and occupied by several generations of his descendants. The last was Hillah Terbell in about 1908.

Bodine was a distant relative of Jean Bodin, a Renaissance philosopher of France.
