This was a great little history lesson of the area. The tour guide was delightful, and she had quite a bit of knowledge of the family. Her stories added to the tour of a very nicely displayed historical site

Our guide gave a pretty unvarnished view of Phillip Schuyler, part of the 1% of his day, and how he made his money. I appreciated that the guide didn't gloss over the unsavory business dealings, and was willing to answer any questions. Wish I could...More

There should be plenty of room to park. Be sure to use your GPS because it is off of the beaten path. We did not bring our RV on this trip so I know there are room. If your RV is a 28 footer or longer (trailer type) there... More
