Staatsburgh State Historic SiteStaatsburg, N.Y.  (7/5/22) — This summer, Staatsburgh State Historic Site is offering guided landscape walks on the Gilded Age estate’s beautiful grounds overlooking the Hudson River.  The program, entitled “What You See… and What You Don’t See,” shows how 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 reveal what visitors would have seen at the turn of the 20th Century, but also step behind the curtain to show what was hidden from them.
