Tours Guests To View Dramatic Changes

(Garrison, NY ) – Boscobel will reopen its doors to the public April 2nd, after its annual 3-month hiatus. The very heart of Boscobel underwent a dramatic change this winter. The federal mansion’s grand entry hall was the subject of a historic and scientific study which, to everyone’s surprise and delight, revealed original paint on its walls dating 1808. In addition, new wallpaper was made and installed along with a new period-appropriate floorcovering.

First-time visitors will delight in the hall’s more authentic beauty, while returning guests will be in awe of the metamorphosis. Read about the historic upgrade, from paint to wallpaper to floorcloth, by visiting Boscobel.org. Or, learn first-hand by planning your in-person, guided tour. Reservations are notnecessary.

In addition to The Garrison Art Institute’s sculpture exhibit which opens on the grounds April 2, the Cold Spring Farmers’ Market which opens in the lower parking lot on May 10 and The Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival whose performances under the tent on the east lawn premiere June 10, Boscobel House & Gardens also hosts a variety of programs and events open to the public. This spring’s line-up includes:

Boscobel is located on scenic Route 9D in Garrison, New York just one mile south of Cold Spring and directly across the river from West Point. Boscobel is closed January through March. From April through October, hours are 9:30am to 5pm (first tour at 10am; last at 4pm); November & December 9:30am to 4pm (last tour at 3pm).  The House Museum and distinctive Gift Shop at Boscobel are open every day except Tuesdays, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
