Boscobel House & Gardens

Boscobel House & Gardens

Boscobel is situated on a bluff on the east bank of the Hudson River opposite the United States Military Academy at West Point. Visitors are invited to tour the house museum and surrounding 45 acres of grounds and gardens. The rose garden, orangery, springhouse, and the Woodland Trail are just a few of the several sites that self-guided tours are welcomed. The home contains one of the nation’s leading collections of furniture and decorative arts from the Federal period, much of it made by premier New York cabinetmakers such as Duncan Phyfe and Michael Allison. An exhibit portraying the rescue and restoration of Boscobel can be found in the visitor's center.

We hope you enjoy our work.
