  • This lovely mansion was the site of the wedding of Alexander Hamilton and Eliza Schuyler. You must made reservations in advance to tour. Allow about one hour for your visit. There are restrooms...

  • Fantastic spot, the overlook all the way down to the water is worth the trip up, definitely take a walk around the gardens. There's a few blocks with interesting historical information and.. if you're lucky.. The feral cats that the staff take care of will be in a friendly mood that day! Either way, the herb garden was a particular highlight for me!
  • The Schuyler Mansion was home to Philip J. Schuyler, the renowned Revolutionary War general, US Senator, and business entrepreneur. He and his wife, Catharine Van Rensselaer, descended from affluent and powerful Dutch families. Together they raised eight children in this home. The Georgian structure, reflecting Schuyler's English tastes - was built on a bluff overlooking the Hudson River. Originally situated on an 80-acre tract of land, the grounds once included an orchard, a formal garden, and a working farm. Throughout the Schuyler family occupancy from 1763-1804, the mansion was the site of military strategizing, political hobnobbing, elegant social affairs, and an active family life. The wedding of daughter Elizabeth Schuyler to Alexander Hamilton took place in the house in 1780.
