    The Wilderstein Historic Site is not-for-profit house museum located on a wooded bluff overlooking the Hudson River.  It was the home of Margaret Suckley, a cousin and confidante of Franklin Roosevelt, and is widely regarded as the Hudson Valley’s most important example of Victorian architecture. The estate consists of 40-acres created over a century ago in the American romantic style by landscape architect Calvert Vaux. The trail system that traverses the property is approximately three miles long and takes about one hour to hike.

    Also available on weekends Guided Outdoor Tours of the landscape and the exterior of the mansion

    During his career, Vaux enjoyed an important association with Frederick Law Olmsted. At Wilderstein, Calvert Vaux created an intricate network of carriage drives, walks, and trails adorned with specimen trees and ornamental shrubs. The landscape plan entails well-chosen prospect points marked by rustic gazebos and sheltered garden seats. The trail system that traverses the property is approximately three miles long and takes about one hour to hike. Vaux’s reverence for nature, always clearly and thoughtfully expressed in his work, is still evident.
