Clermont State Historic Site
Steeped in history and built beautifully in brick and stone, the Clement State Historic Site features the former estate of Robert Livingston Jr. which dates back to the early 18th century. Standing tall on the banks of the Hudson River, it has survived a burning by the British in the Revolutionary War and inspired a Colonial Revival in the 1920s. Today it is owned by the state and preserved in its 1930s style, with period furniture and decorative arts that reflect three centuries of history.

Visitors can browse the grand halls and view the impressive art, porcelain collection, and chandeliers that characterize the opulent interior. Tours grant insight into the seven generations who once lived here. Their stories, and the world at the time during which they lived, are certainly worth hearing. You also won’t want to miss the views from its landscaped gardens, which include a lilac walk, a walled garden, and some of the best birdwatching in the area.
