To honor all former U.S. military personnel, Boscobel is offering free house and grounds admission to veterans who show their military ID (or even a photo of themselves wearing their uniform) at the front desk during the month of November. The Boscobel Salutes Veterans Program also includes half-price admission for up to five family members per visiting veteran.
Carolin Serino, Boscobel’s interim executive director said: “We are delighted to offer the beauty and history of Boscobel to those who have served to protect our nation and its heritage. On several occasions, while standing on Boscobel’s great front lawn overlooking the majestic Hudson River and West Point Military Academy, I have been privileged to see American bald eagles flying overhead, an inspiring sight to say the least. It is my hope that many of our men and women who served in the military, along with their families, will enjoy the splendor of Boscobel and its view of American history.”
House and grounds admission at Boscobel includes a 45-minute guided tour of the mansion, as well as access to the gorgeous grounds that surround it, including breathtaking views of the Hudson River and a 1.5-mile woodland trail. In addition, enjoy the exhibit currently on display in the Boscobel Exhibition Gallery, Reflections Renewed: Hudson River Images Revisited, a photographic, “now-and-then” display curated by Alexander Boyle.
In November and December, hours are 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. (last tour at 3 p.m.). Boscobel is open every day except Tuesdays, Thanksgiving and Christmas. For more information, visit Boscobel.org or call 845-265-3638.
