Hill Hold Museum

Hill Hold Museum

This museum depicts what life was like on a Hudson Valley farm in the 1830's. Hill-Hold was built with wide plank floors, handsome paneling and huge fireplaces. It was originally home to the prosperous farmer, Thomas Bull, and his family. The now museum houses original 1830 furnishings, ranging from a prized old mahogany sideboard to made-on-the-farm pieces. The farm served the Bull-Jackson family for over two hundred years and still revels the simplicity of farm life in New York. Visitors are welcome to tour the home, as well as the one room schoolhouse and farm animal exhibits.

We hope you enjoy our work.
