Boscobel – Hudson River Mansion

Last week I began this entry on the field trip to the Hudson River Valley taken by the staff at the Webb Deane Stevens Museum in Wethersfield, CT. Our first stop was Constitution Island, where we toured the historic house and enjoyed an elegant lunch while cruising on the Hudson. Link here:

After lunch, we drove to nearby Boscobel, the imposing 1808 mansion built by the States Dyckman family. Situated on 45 lovely acres on the edge of the Hudson River, visitors can take a guided tour of the meticulously maintained house and its substantial collection of Federal furnishings. The grounds are magnificent, containing a formal rose garden, an orangery and herb garden, several fountains, woods walk, and one of the most beautiful views in America.
