Staatsburgh State Historic Site is the elegant country home of Ogden Mills and his wife Ruth Livingston Mills. Sitting atop a grassy hill overlooking the Hudson River and the Catskill Mountains, their house is a fine example of a great estate built by America’s financial and industrial leaders during the Gilded Age (1876 – 1917). Also known as the American Renaissance, this period in American history was marked by America’s rapid economic growth and emergence as a world power. The elegant mansion, restored to its turn-of-the-century appearance, is open for tours and the house and grounds offer special events throughout the year. Nearby Atlantic Kayak Tours (www.atlantickayaktours.com) offers different kayak tours and instructional programs.
