With national visibility and local accolades as the tri-state area’s top source for robust and entertaining educational experiences, Historic Hudson Valley welcomes more than 300,000 visitors a year to our school programs, large-scale special events, and tours of historic properties including Washington Irving’s Sunnyside, Van Cortlandt Manor, Philipsburg Manor, and Union Church of Pocantico Hills.
