More importantly, it was the meeting place for the original New York State Senate after the Revolutionary War. History was made here as colonists shaped a newly created government. There is a collection of colonial-era artifacts, furniture, and a portrait gallery featuring the works of the famous colonial artist, John Vanderlyn. The Senate House State Historic site is comprised of 3 buildings: the 1676 Senate House, the Senate House Museum & Gallery, and the Loughran House (which houses staff offices and is open for special events only). The property welcomes individuals, families, school groups, scout troops and group bus tours. The site offers special educational programs for school field trips and home school groups.
