Historic Sites 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.

Stroll along old carriage roads on 20 acres of the historic landscape. View features designed for Matthew Vassar's summer home.
