    Boscobel is a restored Federal-period house built between 1804-1808 with magnificent period interiors and gardens. The site is recognized nationally for its quality as a historic house museum, its exquisite collection of furniture and decorative arts, and its breathtaking views.

    Rescued from demolition in 1955, the house was moved from its original site in Montrose, New York to its current location and restored, thanks to the determination of several preservation–minded individuals and to the generosity of co-founder of The Reader’s Digest, Lila Acheson Wallace. The museum opened its doors to visitors in 1961.

    Fully-furnished with fine American furniture and decorative arts, the house has been exquisitely preserved over the years by the careful management of Boscobel’s original endowment and through the dedication and hard work of its staff, Board of Directors, members of the Friends of Boscobel, partner organizations, supporters and volunteers.

    Each year, the board and professional staff have strived to further improve the authenticity of the buildings and its furnishings and to engage visitors through special tours, workshops, exhibitions and special events throughout the year. We are eternally grateful to those who worked so hard to save Boscobel and ensure its future, and to all our visitors, who continue to make Boscobel one of the Hudson Valley’s most popular attractions.
