The Old Stone House, also known as “The Diack House” is one of the oldest homes in Pelham, built by Alexander Diack just two years after the railroad arrived in 1849.  You may also hear it referred to as “The Parrish House” because it’s said still to be the home of Mrs. Parrish – a ghost story beautifully recounted by local historian Blake Bell.

A newspaper report from 1935 describes it as “the old Georgian house, built of undressed Tuckahoe marble with its cut out barge board, reminiscent of the Elizabethan period, its solid, four-square look and pleasant gardens, belongs to another era of living, more gracious, more leisured and somehow permanent.”
