Its Neoclassical mansion holds an exceptional collection of New York furniture from the Federal period. Sited in the Hudson Valley, fifty miles north of Manhattan, Boscobel directly overlooks the Hudson River and West Point. Open to visitors six days a week from April through December, Boscobel House and Gardens serves the local and international community with guided house tours of its admired interiors, delightful and educational programming for children, lectures by leading experts in design and architecture, unique and inspiring gallery exhibitions, and special events of matchless beauty. The mansion itself was first built in Montrose, New York between 1804 and 1808. Its original owner, States Morris Dyckman, was a wealthy Loyalist descended from one of the early Dutch families of New Amsterdam. By the 1950s, the federal government had built a veterans’ hospital on the property, and slated the house for demolition. Dedicated preservationists recovered as many architectural fragments as possible with a goal toward rebuilding Boscobel elsewhere. With strong personal investment and financial support from Reader’s Digest co-founder Lila Acheson Wallace, Boscobel found a new, permanent home on its current site in Garrison, New York. The mansion was restored and furnished based on surviving, original inventories and photography. When Boscobel opened its doors to museum visitors in 1961, then-Governor of New York Nelson A. Rockefeller called it “one of the most beautiful houses ever built in America.” The mission of Boscobel House and Gardens is to enrich the lives of its visitors with memorable experiences of the history, culture, and environment of the Hudson River Valley. less
