Albany County Historical Association-Ten Broeck Mansion


An Official Path Through History Site! The Ten Broeck Mansion was built in 1797-98 for General Abraham Ten Broeck and his wife, Elizabeth Van Rensselaer. The home is a Federal-style house with sloping lawns and formal gardens. The mansion, which they named Prospect, commanded a sweeping view of the Hudson River. Thomas Worth Olcott acquired the residence in 1848 and renamed it Arbor Hill, after the surrounding area. This richly diverse and historic neighborhood, with a wealth of architectural details, still bears this name today. The ACHA represents the stories of builders and artisans, immigrants and servants, and enslaved persons and free persons of color in our interpretation. We recommend you allow 60-90 minutes for your visit. Season gallery space open at King's Place (additional 20-30 minutes recommended). Admission: $5, Students & Seniors: $4, Children Free. ACHA member admission: free. Subject to change. Self-guided garden and tree tours available via our educational garden kiosk. Gardens open free from dawn until dusk.
