The Old House is a historic home on State Route 25 in Cutchogue in Suffolk County, New York. It is "notable as one of the most distinguished surviving examples of English domestic architecture in America."
The home was built in 1649 in Southold, New York, and was moved in 1661. The House was originally built by John Budd on land East of town near a pond that became known as Budd Pond. His daughter Anna & her husband Benjamin Horton were deeded the house in 1658 as a wedding present. They moved it to its present location at the village of Cutchogue. Parker Wickham (February 28, 1727–May 22, 1785), famous for being a Loyalist politician during the American Revolution and who was banished from the state of New York under dubious circumstances, owned and lived in the house. It was damaged by the Hurricane of 1938, restored in 1940, and restored again in 1968.
It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1961. The house is located on the Cutchogue Village Green, along with the 1840 Old Schoolhouse, the 1704 Wickham Farmhouse, a barn, the Cutchogue New Suffolk Free Library, a 19th-century carriage house, and the Old Burying Ground dating from 1717. The buildings are owned and maintained by the Cutchogue-New Suffolk Historical Council, which gives guided tours in the summer.
