1714, Luis Moses Gomez, who had fled from the Spanish
Inquisition, purchased 6,000 acres of land along the Hudson
River in what is today Orange County, New York, where
several Indian trails converged. Here he built a fieldstone
block house into the side of a hill and by a stream that
became known as Jew's Creek. Today,
the Gomez Mill House is a museum and historic site.
