Historical Marker for the Valentine homestead . The Valentine homestead no longer exists. The St. Joseph’s Seminary and College now sits on the property. The Seminary was established in 1896.
There are two markers on site. The New York State (blue and yellow) historical marker and a stone marker/monument that reads ” Gen. George Washington during the American Revolution frequently made his headquarters at the Valentine homestead. Which stood one hundred and fifty feet back of this tablet.”
I assume that the vantage point from the homestead would have allowed for strategic views; among them down through Yonkers to Hudson River to the west and views of Mount Vernon, New Rochelle out to the Long Island sound to the east.
There is a drone view photo and some historic photos of the seminary on their history page which can be visited through the link posted above.
