Although superficially the least spectacular of the seven Historic Hudson Valley properties, this working estate and Revolutionary War-era country manor house is a living-history museum that reveals much about the life and activities of the 18th century. Guides don Federal period dress, and the massive open-hearth kitchen and grounds play host to cooking, blacksmithing, weaving, and brick-making demonstrations. The tavern on the premises served customers of a ferry business that carried people back and forth across the Croton River.
