Historic Sites & Museums in the Hudson Valley

Here in the Hudson River Valley, historic sites are a ubiquitous part of the Dutchess County landscape. Not only can you step back in time, you can choose which time -- pre-Revolutionary war, early Quaker days, the Gilded Age, or the early 20th century and the era of Franklin D. Roosevelt. You can even see Dutchess County through the eyes of the original Dutch settlers with a self-guided audio tour from Dutch Heritage World Tours.
