Conference House (juga disebut "Bentley Manor")[3] dibangun sebelum 1680 dan telretak dekat ujung paling selatan negara bagian New York di Staten Island, yang kemudian dikenal sebagai "Billop's Point" pada abad ke-18. Konferensi Perdamaian Staten Island diadakan di sini pada 11 September 1776, yang gagal mengakhiri Perang Revolusi Amerika. Rumah ini yang menjadi markah tanah New York City dan Amerika Serikat, merupakan satu-satunya rumah puri pra-Revolusi yang masih berdiri di New York City. Bangunan ini terletak di Conference House Park menghadap Raritan Bay.
