The early home of the Livingston family, aristocratic 18th century settlers. Located on a bluff overlooking the majestic Hudson River, with gardens and grounds to explore, well run by the State of New York. Tours and a good gift shop, too.

Went to tour the mansion today for the holiday season, the mansion was so beautifully decorated, and the period clothing that the staff wore was so nice. The music being played up stairs made the house feel even more welcoming. Such a beautiful way to...More
