The Adams–Chadeayne–Taft Estate is a set of two historic homes and a pottery works ruin located at Cornwall-on-Hudson in Orange County, New York. It includes the Nathaniel Adams House (c. 1844), Clark-King House (c. 1800–1850), and site of the Clark Stoneware Works (c. 1793–1840). The Nathaniel Adams House is a 2+12-story, square plan, brick dwelling topped by a low hipped roof. The interior features extensive Trompe-l'œil. The Clark-King House consists of a three-story main block flanked by lower two-story wings. The interior features Federal style woodwork. Associated with the Clark-King House are the contributing cistern and cast iron gateposts. The ruins of the Clark Stoneware Works include a section of a stone wall and the remains of a brick kiln.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on December 27, 2013.[1]

On the site of the Adams House formerly stood the homestead of Peter Roe, considered the first abolitionist in Orange County. He was the father of the novelist Edward Payson Roe.
