Boscobel is a historic mansion located on the Hudson River offers guided tours of the mansion, and a variety of cultural, educational and recreational programs and events. It has picnic tables, bistro tables, chairs and grassy lawns overlooking a jaw-dropping spot for one of, if not the best, panoramic views of the Hudson River and its Highlands. Come and visit!

Boscobel House, built between 1804-1808, is widely regarded as one of the finest examples of Federal architecture in the country and contains one of the nation’s leading collections of furniture and decorative arts from the Federal period. Tours of the house cover the unique architectural details, furniture and decorative arts of the house, daily life in the early 1800s, the fascinating history of the lives and perseverance of both States and Elizabeth Dyckman, and the dramatic story of the rescue and preservation of the house. With knowledgeable docents guiding you on the hour-long tour, individuals and groups of all ages and interests will be sure to be enlightened and entertained.

Take in a Special Exhibition
Each year, Boscobel collaborates with a variety of arts organizations and institutions to bring special exhibitions to its gallery and grounds. From outdoor sculptures to indoor shows that range from Currier & Ives prints to contemporary Hudson River Valley landscapes, Boscobel’s rotating exhibits are not to be missed. Visitors interested in the recent history of the house can also learn more about its dramatic preservation story in a special exhibition located in the Visitor’s Center. More information about past, current and upcoming exhibitions can be found on the Special Exhibitions page.
