Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 14, 1990):
Begun in 1690, Wyck is a rare example of a colonial type of structure that has been completely documented by nine generations of the same Quaker family. The house, outbuildings, and gardens, as well as the interior furnishings and record books, letters, etc., provide a vivid record of one family's way of life from the 18th to the 20th century. It was altered in 1824 by William Strickland.
