The rural homestead where Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan and his family lived for 36 years is on the market.

"Pat's giving up the Senate and I'm giving up the farm," his wife, Elizabeth Moynihan, told the Associated Press over the weekend.

The home, where Hillary Rodham Clinton symbolically began her run to replace him, is being offered for $1.1 million. It is comprised of two Greek Revival houses, two barns, the schoolhouse, ponds, a stream and 8,000 feet of road frontage on 500 acres. The home is in the hamlet of Pindar's Corners, about 57 miles west of Albany.

"Everyone I know who is over 70 like me is trying to simplify their life," Elizabeth Moynihan said. "I have arthritis in the knees and I can't garden six hours a day," she said.
