Discover the Rich Past of Dutchess County Scene

Historic sites are a ubiquitous part of the Hudson River Valley.  Step back in a time to the pre-Revolutionary war era, the early Quaker days, the Gilded Age, or the early 20th century and Roosevelt era.  Apart from historical sites aplenty, a larger-than-life aircraft collection, an educational children's museum and other await you.
