Had a chance to come back here. I've not been here for about 50 years. Nice staff and historian, building is circa 1600s, and has neat architecture and furniture. If you're in this part of the city, worth a visit.

Great place for a visit. It has a lot of history inside. Young children will really be interested in the story behind the building.

We had been to the Philipse Manor Mill farther north, and were traveling up the slow road along the Hudson north of New York City. We saw this name and stopped. This is the oldest house around, from the 1700's, and has lots of history,...More
