A reconstructed 200 year-old building serves as a museum and nature center. This former Presbyterian Church in Bedford Village was dismantled and rebuilt at the Chestnut Ridge Rd. entrance in 1973. The central room is used as an auditorium for public, school and scout programs and its periphery and second story balcony contains exhibits of flora and fauna of Westchester County.
Nearby is an outdoor lecture area, a center for maple sugaring, old cemetery, wildlife garden and composting demonstration area.
Located just outside the museum is the entrance to the EASY LOOP TRAIL. This trailhead is the beginning of more than 7 miles of trails. The trails lead visitors past the many rocky cliffs, ponds and streams within the boundaries of Westmoreland. Please visit our KIOSK located in the parking area for your trail map.
Hours of Operation:
