Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site

The Vanderbilt Mansion, in upstate New York, is a American expression and celebration of the era of the English country house estate. These grand estates thrived in the United States after post-Civil War industrialization, in the early 1900s through the 1930s. The lovely mansion stands on a 211-acre estate with sweeping views of the Hudson River and Catskill Mountains. As a visitor you can tour the historic home or explore the estate grounds, open from dawn through dusk. The grounds feature the mansion’s Italian Gardens, which have undergone extensive restoration and are now in beautiful condition.

If You Go

In the summer months, the Fredrick William Vanderbilt Garden Association, a non-profit dedicated to the preservation of the Italian Gardens, hosts events in the garden, such as evenings of wine, cheese, and live music. Enjoy the park with elegance!
