“home to only the most prominent New Yorkers for over two centuries”

Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site, historically known as Hyde Park, is one of the oldest and most venerable Hudson River estates. For nearly two centuries, this place has been home to socially prominent New Yorkers. Frederick Vanderbilt purchased the property in 1895 and hired the architects McKim, Mead & White to design a new house of exceptional quality. Today, Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site remains one of the nation's premier monuments of the Gilded Age.

Historically known as Hyde Park, Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site is one of the region's oldest Hudson River estates. For nearly two centuries, this place has been home to socially prominent New Yorkers. A superb example of its type, Hyde Park represents the domestic ideal of the elite class in the late nineteenth-century America. It provides a glimpse of estate life, the social stratification of the period, and the world of the American millionaire during the era historians refer to as the Gilded Age.

The National Park Service preserves over 200 acres of the original property, including historic buildings, original furnishings, manicured landscapes, natural woodlands, formal gardens and associated documents. The centerpiece of the estate is the mansion, a masterpiece of American Beaux-Arts design by the distinguished architectural firm McKim, Mead & White.
