Jacob Rutsen Van Rensselaer House and Mill Complex is a historic home and mill complex consisting of 14 interrelated buildings and located at Claverack in Columbia County, New York. The house was built by Jacob R. Van Rensselaer circa 1805 and is a two story brick building set on an English basement. The interior features a pair of octagonal chambers. A two story addition in the Colonial Revival style was built in 1929. Located behind the house is a former office (ca. 1840) and two large barns (ca. 1840). The mill dates to the 18th century and includes additions completed in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Also on the property are the remains of early waterworks, a store building or former cooperage, a frame dwelling (ca. 1830), two additional dwellings, and an Italianate dwelling with four outbuildings dated to about 1884 (carriage house, ice house, shop and tool shed, and small animal barn).[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]
