“Fine American Cuisine in Potsdam!”
We are a "Bistro" style restaurant serving American Regional cuisine that showcases the best foods and flavors that our community, state, and country have to offer. We serve fine cuisine and provide superior service in a unique historic atmosphere. The "1844 House" was built originally as a farmhand's house, circa 1844, by Ira T. French. Later the house was sold to William Perry French, a son of Ira's. He expanded the building to house a general store and community hall. William French sold the property in 1885. A hundred years later Sally T.S. Dingsoyr (a sixth generation descendant of Ira French) and Gigi J. Schreiber bought the house in 1985 and converted it into a restaurant. It opened as "French's 1844 House" in February of 1986 and featured French influenced Continental Cuisine until it closed in 2001. After five years of “hibernation” the restaurant was “re-awakened” in May of 2006 by husband and wife culinary team Brian & Jenny Walker.
