Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site
Behind the Scenes: Servants to Stewards TourNote: No manual labor involved, however, this tour requires climbing a staircase of 74 steps. Comfortable shoes, a healthy heart & a bright attitude are strongly recommended!
Go behind the scenes for a real sense of life as a servant in the meticulous running of the Vanderbilt household. You will be assigned a servant role, introduced to your supervisor, catch a glimpse of your sleeping quarters, get a list of your daily duties, learn how to behave as a servant in The Gilded Age and never set foot in the main house. Servants tour can be combined with a main house tour or with The Gilded Age Tour at Staatsburgh State Historic Site.
Advance reservations are required. Call for details.
