We ended up at Friendship Hill on the advice of our tour guide at Searight's Toll House and were so glad we stopped in. Since it was the July 4th holiday, it wasn't crowded at all, just a handful of people. We toured the house...More

Went here with my wife, 3 young children, and my parents. The location itself is pretty far off the beaten path, but that adds to the appeal. The grounds leading into Gallatin's Friendship Hill homestead are lined with trees and rolling green spaces. Closer to...More

Following other owners, along with their additions, then falling into disrepair, the Park Service has done a remarkable job in restoring what had been the Albert Gallatin home. Self-guided tour. Watch the two short films as they will help to better understand what had been...More

The house is a self guided tour and you can not go up the stairs to the highest level or go on the porches. It was a nice house and very lovely. The walking trails that lead away from the house are beautiful, but unless...More

It pains me to give this place three stars. The man who built the house initially was as important to the young nation as any of the founding fathers. The National Park rangers were incredibly informed, helpful, and ready to educate. However, the house itself...More

Unless you're quite the history buff, you might not think too much of the house itself. Much seems original but there are better national parks to immerse you in the style of the period (e.g. anything owned by Jefferson). But I'd still go here for...More

Lin-Manuel Miranda, in writing his hit play "Hamilton," did not include Albert Gallatin, one of my favorite early American statesmen. Gallatin immigrated to the United States from Geneva, Switzerland when he was 19 years old. The way to riches in early times was not in...More

We visited for the annual autumn festivities, which are free to the public (donations accepted). There were about 20 tents set up with different vendors (wood crafts, floral crowns, artisans) and food available. They had roast beef sandwiches, a bean soup that was delicious, baked...More

Reasonably well kept with some interesting artifacts and beautiful grounds. Worth a stop if you are nearby.

While I have visited from time to time just to tour Albert Gallatin's house and learn more about early American culture, I have also used these grounds to take photos for clients. The tree lined land is beautiful all year. The grounds and architecture are...More

Albert Gallatin's house is modest so you can tour it relatively quickly. His footprint on America's early years is huge, though, and if you have the right docent you could easily spend a few hours thinking about how this... More
