A Once-a-Year Chance

Next weekend, May 19 and 20, is New York Heritage Weekend, an annual event when hundreds of heritage and cultural destinations in the Hudson River Valley and throughout New York State are open free to the public. Historic Hudson is participating in Heritage Weekend by opening the Dr. Oliver Bronson House, Hudson's only National Historic Landmark, to the public from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. 

Opportunities to see the Dr. Oliver Bronson House, which is located on the grounds of the Hudson Correctional Facility, are rare, and this will be the first time the house has been open to the public since the Phase I Stabilization was completed. Drawings for the Phase II Stabilization, prepared by Mesick Cohen Wilson Baker Architects, will be on display. Alan Neumann and Peter Watson, members of Historic Hudson's Dr. Oliver Bronson House Committee, will offer tours of the house each day at 1 and 3 p.m. 

In case you've forgotten (is that even possible?) or never knew, this is the house with the amazing elliptical staircase.
