Boscobel was constructed in the early 19th century for Morris Dyckman and his wife. A Loyalist whose family made its fortune working for the British quartermasters during the American Revolution, Dyckman died before Boscobel was completed. Originally built 15 miles downriver, the house was moved and reconstructed when it was threatened with demolition in the 1950s. One of this fine Federal style house's most distinctive features is a recessed porch topped by carved wooden swags in the shape of drapery. The property includes the furnished main house, landscaped grounds, formal gardens, woodland trails, and spectacular views.
