Vandals destroyed several second-floor windows of the historic Bush-Lyon Homestead, Port Chester police said.
Employees from the Department of Public Works first noticed the damage at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, telling police there was no damage to the historic home – which was built in the 1700s – the night before, Lt. James Ladeairous said. Police believe the vandalism occurred late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning.
The house, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is maintained by the village, features old-style, paneled glass windows. DPW workers didn't have an immediate estimate for how much it would cost to repair the second-floor windows, which were punched out by rocks thrown from the outside.
It wasn't immediately clear if the home, which is open to the public daily from 1 to 4 p.m., would be temporarily closed because of the damage. History buffs can call the village at 914-937-3169 to confirm tours.
