Venue Description: Interested in what politics and religion were like in the 1700s? Don't miss Van Cortlandt Manor in Croton-on-Hudson. Raising a family in the years after the Revolutionary War, the Van Cortlandts became one of New York?s most distinguished residents. Visitors stroll what was once their property, past the Croton River and heritage gardens, and see that their stone manor and brick ferry house attest to their prominence.

At Van Cortlandt Manor, you can engage in blacksmithing, brick-making, open-hearth cooking, spinning, and weaving, and discuss the Federalist and anti-Federalist debates and the rise of evangelical religion. Enter the manor house and discover the lavish furnishings in their original state from the Colonial and Federal periods. Learn the medicinal and nutritional practices of the time in one of the largest and best-equipped colonial kitchens in America, located downstairs. Visit the Ferry House, a rural tavern that offered food, drink, and lodging to families, and explore the daily issues that were faced by the families of this time. Built prior to 1750, this house contains a broad array of Hudson Valley vernacular furnishings. After discussing the controversy of emancipation, step into the 18th-century flower and vegetable garden to ease your mind.
