Welcome!

Abolitionist, town supervisor and prominent citizen Ransom Stiles’ home is a beautiful example of Federal-style architecture on Main Street in Argyle, NY. The rich history, connection to our town’s heritage and unique architectural details are worth preserving. Our group’s passion is to preserve the Stiles House for future generations as a historical, cultural and community center. All restoration projects are fully funded by donations and fundraising by this group.

What’s happening at the house?

Foundation work will begin this fall to repair the stacked stone foundation and replace the preserved clapboard to stabilize the attached privy.

Side porch with access ramp is blueprinted and awaits funding.
