  • Locust Grove (Samuel Morse estate) is well worth a visit. While the museum is small, the house (when it is open) is fascinating and the grounds with rolling hills leading down to the Hudson are well worth exploring on well-designed paths. Also, the visitor's center is reservable for weddings and other events.
  • Beautiful historic place with massive grounds. Unfortunately the houses and offices were closed the day I visited due to the federal government stopping funds for them to run places like this. Other than this I took a walk around the gardens and it was lovely.
  • The trails are excellent and intersect such that you can easily take a hikes of varying lengths without traversing the same area twice and it is still a short distance to the trailhead from almost any point if you need to suddenly leave for any reason. Easy terrain, great for families with small kids.
  • Beautiful historic wedding venue! We always enjoy coming here to officiate, DJ & provide our Magic Mirror Photobooth Services at this beautiful venue!
  • It's a nice place to visit take hikes have wedding parties and there's a lot of artwork that too
