Senate House State Historic Site


Create your own Delft tile at Senate House!
Delft was a city in the Netherlands which began creating tiles in 1600. This type of tiling was intended to imitate Chinese porcelain and as a result, became a major industry for the region.
Delft would be shipped to the Americas as it was becoming a popular form of decoration, particularly in the Hudson Valley in the 17th and 18th Centuries. Tiles would feature trees, flowers, birds, people, animals and other objects. We hope to see you at Senate House for this fun activity!
