The Dr. Oliver Bronson home is being brought back from the brink of oblivion by the dedicated work of local historic preservationists. Although there is a lot of restoration work still to do, you can see why it is on the Register of National Historic sites. With its graceful central staircase and large airy rooms, you can imagine what the place once looked like and what it will become once again. It is fascinating to see history being restored, since usually you only get to visit places like this once the work is done.

Contact the wonderful folks at Historic Hudson who will arrange for your visit and give you lots of great architectural & historic insights

It is a spectacular house that has been saved from ruin and is undergoing restoration by Historic Hudson. A landmark in the history of American domestic architecture it is a must for anyone seriously interested in the history of the Hudson River.

This property has an aura. It is beautiful in decline and renovation. I am glad that I got to experience the before and can't wait to revisit the after. The house is set back in a magnificent woodland setting. The walk way is not level and the grounds in general although beautiful require walking shoes and balance care. There is no food for sale or public toilet. Scenic drive to house narrow paving with over hanging trees and limited on site parking. It is good to read the history of the owners before coming and having a docent. That is unless you want to take beautiful photos or sketches to die for of the woods and the house.
