About Van Cortlandt Manor

At Van Cortlandt Manor, explore the stone manor house and brick ferry house, wander through the heritage gardens, and stroll down a quiet country road along the Croton River.

There, you'll experience the domestic life of a patriot family living in the years just after the American Revolution - the New Nation period.
