The Ten Broeck Mansion has long been a beautiful place to visit and absorb history. But they've upped their game recently with more events that will add appeal to under 40s and to children. While you're there, walk up the street and visit the Stephen...More

With the history of the wealthy revolutionary war owner, I expected more elaborate furnishings- perhaps they are still attempting to accrue more. It seems the back lawn is used for plays and weddings and is very nice for these social gatherings. There is parking behind...More

What an historic gem in Albany. The mansion was bedazzled with Christmas decorations and the well-informed volunteers were eager to share the history of the estate. So pleased we were a part of the Dutch Holiday celebration.
