Discover the Rich Past of Dutchess County Scene

Historic sites are a ubiquitous part of the Hudson Valley.  Step back in time to the era of your choosing: Dutchess County boasts sites and experiences highlighting the early Quaker Days, the Revolutionary War, the Gilded Age, the 20th Century era of the Roosevelts, and so much more. Along with museums, gardens and grand estates aplenty, Dutchess also sports a larger-than-life aircraft collection (with WWI biplanes to ride in), a Scottish-style castle in the middle of the Hudson River, and an interactive train museum. Only here can you "Toast with Tiny George" Washington, stroll through classical gardens and visit Samuel F.B. Morse’s Italianate villa, all in the same day.
