Oliver Rice House
For countless generations, Mayfield residents have pointed with pride to the Rice Homestead as a local treasure.
Built in 1790, Rice Homestead merited a NYS Department of Education official Historical Marker and is on both the National and State Historical Registries. Considered one of the few remaining colonial homes in the US, now a museum maintained by the Mayfield Historical Society containing historical treasures from the Rice family and the Mayfield area.
Once the center of a large farm, the old Rice house now has a setting of a couple of acres facing on the old highway. The large two-story main house seen from Old Route 30 was built circa 1810. The rear of the house was built in 1790, originally erected on a site west of the highway, subsequently moved across the road and added as a rear wing attachment. If driving north, take Route 30 then the first left after intersection of State Hwy 30A, at Mr Softee’s, then left at the stop sign. Coming south through Mayfield, turn right at Mr. Softee’s, then left at stop sign. Homestead is just ahead on the left.
