John Jay Room is named after the Supreme Court Chief Justice who befriended Peter
Van Schaack at Kings College (later known as Columbia University). Jay was one
of several great legal minds who found themselves cast together on campus in
1762. Jay's friendship with Van Schaack stayed in tact during Van Schaack exile
to England. Jay was instrumental in paving the way for Van Schaack's return
to the United States and Kinderhook - greeting his ship upon arrival.
The spacious room has
a private bath and direct access to the upstairs porch.
