Built before the American Revolution, the elegant home of General Philip Schuyler is one of the most outstanding examples of pre-war architecture. During the season, experience a guided-tour of the home from knowledgeable staff who will tell you the history of the home and the Schuyler family that lived there - Philip and Catharine Van Rensselaer Schuyler, and their eight children. Second daughter Elizabeth Schuyler married Alexander Hamilton in the museum's front parlor in 1780. Tours are offered on the hour. Please call in advance of your tour, as pre-scheduled groups and events will alter the tour schedule. Site is CLOSED yearly from October 31st until mid-May, excepting special events.

This mansion was the home of Revolutionary War Major General Philip Schuyler and his family. Many personal items, hats, shoes, sword and furniture is there. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and took his time to explain everything.

With some mention in the new Broadway play "Hamilton", Philip Schuyler has had a bit of a resurgence. Since New York history is the center of US history in pre-revolutionary times, seeing how our "founding fathers" lived is fascinating. The house is being brought back...More
