Located in the heart of the Hudson Valley, 60 miles north of New York City, Boscobel is one of America's most beautiful places, with 68 acres of stunning grounds, iconic Hudson River views, a woodland trail, and pollinator-friendly gardens. Open Fridays - Mondays from May through December and by appointment, Boscobel offers grounds admission, guided grounds walks, and lively outdoor programs that explore history, design, and nature. Register for tours and events online at boscobel.org.

The mission of Boscobel House and Gardens is to engage diverse audiences in the Hudson Valley’s ongoing, dynamic exchange between design, history, and nature.

Boscobel opened as a nonprofit museum sixty years ago. Built between 1804 and 1808, it was originally the dream house of wealthy Loyalists. By the 1950s, after falling into disrepair, it was demolished. Preservationists saved as many architectural fragments as possible and reassembled them fifteen miles north, where the Neoclassical mansion was restored back to—and even beyond—its original grandeur. Boscobel was saved as a beautiful piece of art.

Now an esteemed Historic House Museum containing one of the finest collections of decorative arts from the Federal period, Boscobel offers admission to 68 acres of our grounds, featuring lush gardens and a woodland trail. Located in the heart of the Hudson Valley, Boscobel directly overlooks Constitution Marsh toward the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, showcasing dramatic views of the Hudson River.
