About the Museum
Edward Hopper House in Nyack, New York is the birthplace of the renowned American artist Edward Hopper (1882-1967). It was built in 1858 by his maternal grandfather, and served as his primary residence until 1910. After Hopper’s death the house fell into disrepair, but it was saved from demolition and restored by members of the local community. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Since 1971, the Edward Hopper House has been a not-for-profit art center and museum, preserving the legacy and home of America's most iconic artist. The mission of the Edward Hopper House is to celebrate Edward Hopper’s legacy by preserving his birthplace, family home and archive, while serving as a resource for scholars and artists and nurturing community engagement with the arts.
