Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller Mansion is located in the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park. The collection consists primarily of 19th- and 20th-century art and artifacts belonging to the Billings and Rockefeller families. The diverse collection includes household furnishings, fine arts, decorative arts and family mementos. Of particular importance are the landscape paintings by artists connected to the Hudson River School, because of the School's association with the American conservation movement.
The Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller Mansion was originally constructed as a brick house in the Federal-style (1805). It was remodeled in the then fashionable French Second Empire Style (c 1870). Subsequently it was enlarged and remodeled in the Queen Anne Style we see today.
The Mansion and gardens are open for guided tours from Memorial Day weekend (late May) through October 31. It is wise to make tour reservations in advance.
