The Lansing Manor House was built in 1819 by John Lansing, Jr. for his daughter and son-in-law, Jacob Livingston Sutherland. John Lansing, Jr. represented New York as a delegate to the Constitutional Convention in 1787, and the state's Ratification Convention in 1788.

The manor is located in North Blenheim, Schoharie County, New York, adjacent to the Blenheim-Gilboa Visitors Center and Mine Kill State Park.

The manor house is a two-story, 46-feet square house with a hipped roof. It has brick lined, wood frame construction on the first floor and wood frame on the second. It features a five bay, one story porch along the front facade. Also on the property are: a shed and former summer kitchen, a well and its cover, outhouse, ice house, milk house, barn and silos, a possible guest / tenant house, and several other outbuildings.[2]

The manor house was restored by the New York Power Authority in 1977, and is filled with authentic furnishings from the first half of the 19th century.[3] The property, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places as a national historic district, is operated by the Power Authority in cooperation with the Schoharie County Historical Society.
