The estate has miles of carriage roads, landscaped grounds, historic gardens and Hudson River views It is an independent not-for-profit museum and nature preserve established by Annette Innis Young,

The main house at Locust Grove is a villa in the Italianate style designed in 1850 for artist and inventor Samuel F. B. Morse by architect Alexander Jackson Davis. Fifty years later the house was renovated and expanded for new owners William and Martha Young.  Their daughter, Annette Innis Young, eventually created the foundation that preserves the Estate as a museum today. 

The Estate opened to the public in 1979 and today features the Young family’s 15,000 piece collection of furniture, paintings and decorative arts just as they were used in the early years of the 20th century.
