We had been to the Philipse Manor Mill farther north, and were traveling up the slow road along the Hudson north of New York City. We saw this name and stopped. This is the oldest house around, from the 1700's, and has lots of history, which is also the history of the entire area north of New York under the Dutch and early English rule.The house itself is OK, and they had a special exhibit on the family and the period which was very interesting. A small entrance fee and good brochure, room by room. If you go, wander down the end of the Saw Mill River, which has been converted into a nice small park, and out to the Hudson for some great views, even into Manhattan.
