13. Philipsburg Manor

Philipsburg Manor

Philipsburg Manor was created in 1693 through a royal charter granted to Frederick Philipse I. His 52,000-acre manor remained intact through 1779. Today, visitors can “wander along a picturesque woodland path and enter the year 1750″ and witness what was ” a thriving farming, milling, and trading center owned by the Philipses.”

The Manor provides numerous demonstrations in its gristmill, garden, and farm, which are engaging and informative experiences for visitors of all ages. Inside the manor, guests can handle reproductions of period artifacts and learn more about the Philipse family and the enslaved community.
