The Montgomery Place at Bard College | Historical Site
The Montgomery Place was constructed in 1804 by Janet Livingston Montgomery, widowed of Richard Montgomery, the first general officier to die in the Revolutionary War. During the 1840s (and again in the 1860s) Alexander Jackson Davis rebuilt the building and transformed the Bundeshaus into a classic revival building by building verandas, urns and single-storey grand pianos.
Andrew Jackson Downing also recommended altering the 434-acre site, creating an Arboretum, creating beautiful paths and coach paths, and building pavilions and country-style seating to view the mountain, the stream and a near-by cascade. A number of shaped yards were created in the twentieth Century.
The paths and the garden have been renovated and the area is available for a walk, a walk or a barbecue.
