Hudson River Historic SitesHistorical Sites of Hudson River
Situated between Hyde Park and Hudson City, the lands are linked not only by the river but also by the Livingston family's exceptional presence. From 1730 onwards, members of this group built a number of manors on the eastern shore of the Hudson. Marriage between different parts of the familiy increased the feeling of being deeply ingrained.
Clermont, Wilderstein and Montgomery Place are just a few of the Livingston houses that have lived on into the present day: the Mills and Vanderbilt build large villas created by architects McKim, Mead and White at the peak of gilding. There is great interest among the general population in preserving Hudson's great assets and hopes that these emblems of our nation's legacy will be preserved for the benefit and formation of coming generation.
An important move to fulfill this aspiration was made when Mid-Hudson Valley was recognised as a National Historic Landmark by the US Department of the Interior in 1990.
