Welcome to the General William Floyd House web site. We're glad
you decided to visit us and hope you visit us often.
My name is Russ Marriott and with my wife Jackie,
we are the "caretakers" of the General William Floyd
House. We're actually the owners as well, but when we say caretakers
we are giving you a glimpse into the philosophy behind the relationship
we have with this house. Relative to the history of this landmark
our presence is brief. Our goal is to try to be the best stewards
we can possibly be with the resources we have. We are very passionate
about the restoration and preservation of the house. We feel
very fortunate and privileged to be able to live and work in
the general's home because we know that he loved it just as
much as we do.
We also feel we have a responsibility to share
our experiences. This history of the General and his home are
not the property of the owners, but are the property of all
of us as Americans. For years we have tried to share the house,
the life of the General and our restoration experiences in many
different ways. We hope this web site will offer another means
to achieve that goal.
Welcome, and enjoy your visit.
