From mid-April through December, Boscobel offers expertly guided tours of the Neoclassical mansion. All house tour tickets include admission to 68 acres of our gardens and grounds.
Built between 1804 and 1808, Boscobel was originally the dream house of Loyalists Elizabeth and States Dyckman. But by the 1950s, after falling into disrepair, it was sold to a wrecker for just $35 and demolished. With generous support from Reader’s Digest co-founder Lila Acheson Wallace, preservationists saved as many architectural fragments as possible and reassembled them fifteen miles north in Garrison, New York. The Neoclassical mansion was restored back to – and even beyond – its original grandeur. Though its history and original inhabitants are fascinating, the house is much more than historic. Boscobel was saved as a beautiful work of art.
Tours last approximately 50 minutes.
