Montgomery Place, a serene reflection of nearly 200 years of continuous family stewardship, is best known as a landscape influenced by the great Andrew Jackson Downing and an architectural landmark designed by Alexander Jackson Davis. But the totality of the estate - house, gardens, arboretum, woodlands, orchards, hamlet and natural features - makes it a unique American treasure.The 380-acre property is an amazingly intact example of Hudson Valley estate life. Each of the estate's features has a story to tell about changing American attitudes toward nature, landscape and home design over time.The mansion includes beautiful classical revival exteriors designed by Davis. Visible from the mansion's terrace and north pavilion are inspiring vistas of the Hudson River and Catskill Mountains.The woodland trails, laid out more than 100 years ago, lead through a hemlock and mixed hardwood forest to the cascading waterfalls of the Saw Kill.Lush perennial, annual, and herb gardens, designed in the early 20th century, give a delightful view into the colors, fragrances and designs popular during America's estate garden era. Picturesque and productive orchards border the estate and in season the delicious fruit is available at the Montgomery Place Orchards Farm Stand.
