The tour is followed by a benefit reception at the Oliver Wiswall House on Mount Merino, a Greek Revival mansion with a commanding view to the north, up the Hudson River as far as Albany. Fittingly, the current owner has an extensive collection of Hudson River School paintings, portraying vistas of Mount Merino and the surrounding areas as they appeared in the 19th century.
Tour hours are from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The reception is from 5 to 7 p.m. Tickets for the tour are $40; tickets for the reception are $75. A ticket to both events is $100. Visit historichudson.org for more information about the houses and the event and to purchase tickets. On the day of the tour, tickets can be picked up or purchased at the Hudson Opera House, 327 Warren Street, beginning at 10:30 a.m.
