I live in the Hudson Valley and know Wilderstein well. It is far and away my favorite historic site in the area. Each time I have taken the tour, I have been exposed to something new or something that I didn’t notice before. This site differs from most others because it truly is a restoration work in progress and the progress in the last few years has been amazing. Another cool thing about Wilderstein is that the exhibits are pretty creative (a library turned into a children’s fantasy jungle – where else are you going to see that?) Anyway, it is my favorite place to take out of town guests – even if they’re not into houses – the trails on the grounds (designed by Calvert Vaux) are worth the trip in and of themselves. If you’re into historic homes, restoration or landscape- this place is worth seeing.
