Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site is located in Hyde Park. This National Historic Landmark is serving more than just history lessons to the community.

Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site will have live music events this summer. 

Why Is The Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site Popular?

The Vanderbilt Mansion was one of the most unique homes that I have ever been in within the Hudson Valley. I was able to see what life was like being in a wealthy estate with a grand staircase and several rooms on different floors. It felt like we took a step back in time while walking through the site.

According to the National Park Service,

William Henry Vanderbilt was not only known for being the wealthiest man in America at that time but could be defined as "wealth and privilege" as well.

The Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site was once owned by Dr. Samuel Bard and others. Bard was the physician to George Washington during the time of the American Revolution.

Frederick and Lousie Vanderbuilt lived in the mansion in Hyde Park, NY. This was a place where they visited during the warmer months where they put on house parties, had tennis games onsite along with carriage rides and tea parties.

Those who visit the estate may be speechless in how beautiful and elegant the setting is. If we are still amazed at it's beauty in 2023, I wonder how delighted those who visited in the past were as well.
