Description: The Bloom-Lefferts homestead, which stood at 1224 Fulton Street in the neighborhood of Bedford Corners, was a Dutch-style farmhouse built before the American Revolution. This image shows the house just before it was demolished. The destruction of this and other Dutch farmhouses prompted many Brooklyn residents to preserve houses like the Lefferts homestead, today housed in Brooklyn's Prospect Park.
