Staatsburgh State Historic Site“What You See….and What You Don’t See”

Staatsburg, N.Y. (7/6/20) — This summer, Staatsburgh State Historic Site will give free guided landscape tours on the Gilded Age estate’s beautiful grounds overlooking the Hudson River.  The tour, entitled “What You See… and What You Don’t See,” will be offered Thursday, Saturdays, and Sundays. Reservations are required. To make reservations, visit www.Staatsburgh.Eventbrite.com  

In 1895, Staatsburgh’s landscape architect designed a glorious setting that showcased the good life in the Gilded Age, while deliberately using landscape elements to hide the technology and labor that made a turn-of-the-century estate run. Using historic photos of the grounds, the tour will show what visitors would have seen 100+ years ago, but also “step behind the curtain” to reveal what was hidden from them.
