History-loving travelers will enjoy stepping back in time during a visit to the Mount Gulian Historic Site. This well-kept 18th Century Dutch manor home located on the scenic Hudson River once served as a headquarters during the Revolutionary War and later was the birthplace of the much-storied Society of the Cincinnati. And while its ties to early American history are clear, archeologists suggest the land surrounding Mount Gulian may have been home to Native Americans as early as 6000 BC.
Visitors who opt for a tour of the grounds will find themselves deep in the trenches of American history, as expert guides will gladly share stories of army Major Generals, escaped slaves and groundbreaking revolutions. Whether travelers are interested in the stunningly preserved interiors, well-kept grounds, beautiful Hudson River views or the tales of early American life, a stop at Mount Gulian Historic Site has something for just about everyone.
Mount Gulian Historic Site is located on 13 acres of land at 145 Sterling Street in Beacon, New York. Guided tours are available between May and October, Wednesday through Friday and on Sunday, from 1pm-5pm. Entry is $8 for adults, $6 for seniors, and $4 for children.
