An official Path Through History Site! Restored 19th century Federal-style museum overlooking Hudson River and West Point. The mansion contains the nation's leading collection of furniture and decorative arts made by premier New York cabinetmakers. Boscobel was constructed in the early 19th century for Morris Dyckman and his wife. A Loyalist whose family made its fortune working for the British quartermasters during the American Revolution, Dyckman died before Boscobel was completed. Originally built 15 miles downriver, the house was moved and reconstructed when it was threatened with demolition in the 1950s. The property includes the furnished main house, landscaped grounds, formal gardens, woodland trails, and spectacular views. Guided tours.
