The Schuyler Mansion was home to Revolutionary War general and US Senate Philip J. Schuyler, his wife Catharine Van Rensselaer, and their eight children. The Schuyler family lived at the home from 1763 through 1804. A very special event was hosted at the home in 1780, the wedding of daughter Elizabeth to Alexander Hamilton.

The grounds of the estate once boasted an orchard, a formal garden, and a working farm. Built on a bluff overlooking the Hudson River in Albany, the home is now part of the Schuyler Mansion State Historic Site where visitors can take part in guided tours and year-round public programs.
