Panoramas: Lower Valley
Boscobel South Lawn
'
Drag your mouse in the image to control.

Perched atop a bluff high above the majestic Hudson River, Boscobel is America's premier museum of Federal furnishings and interior decorations. Housed in Boscobel is the most extraordinary collection of Federal domestic furnishings to be found anywhere.

Not its original location, the house was moved to this location to save it from the wrecking ball. Out on the Great Front Lawn you are treated to one of the most spectacular vistas to be found anywhere in the Hudson Valley. Below you lies Constitution Marsh, across the river high atope a prominent bluff is West Point.

Strategically located during the American Revolution, West Point controls the river from its bluff as ships of the day had to 'tack' around the point making two ninety degree turns. From the point, Washington's Army could dominate all transportation up and down the river. And remember, the river was the only means of transportation!

Boscobel is a marvelous stop along your journey through the Hudson Valley. Enjoy the house, the views from the lawn, tarry in the magnificent rose garden and take a quiet stroll down the nature path.
