Historic Interest

Built in 1922, the Starkey House was built by a business man, C.Raymond Brewer over the former location of the original Starkey Hotel of the mid-1800's. It was built as a residence and office for his family but adjacent to the main passenger railroad station that created the historic "hub" of activity in Starkey, NY during those times. The craftsmen built the Starkey House on site using hand tools and wood sourced and brought in via the train and vessels along Seneca Lake. The immediate location was where all local hamlets, called "Eddys" came to the country store, post office and train transportation. The barn which is still on the property, was built circa 1865 and was used to feed, water, and stable the horses used to pull the stagecoaches of the time, which picked up and delivered passengers from the train.
