Vanderbilt Mansion Information

Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site is a 54-room, preserved gilded-age country palace, and represents cultural changes present after the Civil War.

In terms of architecture, interiors, mechanical systems, road systems and landscape, the Vanderbilt Estate is a remarkably complete example of a gilded-age country place, illustrating the political, economic, social, cultural, and demographic changes that occurred as America industrialized in the years after the Civil War. The fully-furnished, 54-room mansion in Hyde Park, New York is placed in a wondrous landscape with breathtaking views of the Hudson River and distant Catskill Mountains. It offers a glimpse into a past world known by only an elite few.
