The Belknap Stone House in Newburgh, New York, was built by Abel Belknap in the 1750s.

Abel Belknap chaired the local Committee of Safety during the war, and when the Continental Army was encamped in the Newburgh area in 1782-83, the house served as James Clinton's headquarters in the area. Today it has been restored and operates as Stone Cottage Veterinary Clinc. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2001.
