Boscobel can be everyone’s dream house on the Hudson.


In 2017, we grew by 28% the number of schools we serve with hands-on history lessons, and established a fund to help pay for field trip buses. Visitors of all ages were inspired by Make-Do’s: Curiously Repaired Antiques, the first exhibition to feature objects deemed too precious to discard, even when broken. Our guestbook overflowed with heartfelt responses

“This exhibit opened a whole new world for me.”

“Very moving. . . ”

“Amazing exhibit! A long-lost art of repairing things vs. the disposable world we are living in now.”


Boscobel looks forward to serving more diverse audiences than ever with engaging experiences in design, history, and nature. Our 2018 season will include family-friendly programs such as our inaugural Symphony Picnic, Heritage Apple Festival, and annual Military Reenactment Day. Next year, we will also launch an expanded variety of tours and—for the first time ever—pay- as-you- wish options to explore the grounds and mansion.


Please give generously to Boscobel House and Gardens. Donations at any level help open our doors ever wider. Every contribution is invaluable.
