Details

Crailo is the museum of the colonial Dutch in the Hudson River Valley. The 1707 Van Rensselaer family home and block house, built on an earlier 17th century foundation, is sometimes referred to as a fort. In the 1660`s there was reference to the little fort at Crailo. It was an important muster place for troops during the French and Indian Wars and the Revolutionary War. A recreation of a Dutch House room and a cellar kitchen give visitors a sense for life 300-400 years ago. A Path Through History attraction.
