AAA Editor Notes
Van Cortlandt Manor is off US 9 at 525 S. Riverside Ave. This restored 18th-century Dutch-English manor house on 20 acres of what was originally an 86,000-acre estate shows the lifestyle of a patriotic family just after the American Revolution. Family portraits, furniture, silver and porcelains are exhibited. Costumed interpreters demonstrate 18th-century craft skills. The restored Ferry House and Ferry House Kitchen at the east end supplied food and lodging to travelers on the Albany Post Road.
Guided tours are available. Time: Allow 1 hour minimum.
