Located at 17 Rippleton Rd., Lorenzo is the 1807 Federal-style home of John Lincklaen, Holland Land Company agent and founder of Cazenovia. Lorenzo was continually occupied by the Lincklaen/Ledyard family until the property and contents were conveyed to New York State in 1968. The imprint of all of Lorenzo’s residents, including enslaved people, servants, and the many employees required to run the estate, can be found at every turn. Lorenzo State Historic Site is operated by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, which oversees 180 state parks and 35 historic sites that are visited by over 60 million people annually.
The Friends of Lorenzo is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and promoting Lorenzo State Historic Site.
