Journey to Colonial America! Wander along a woodland path and enter the year 1750, when Philipsburg Manor was a thriving milling and trading complex that was home to several hundred tenant farmers and twenty three enslaved individuals of African descent.
Step into the gristmill and learn about the work of Caesar, the enslaved African miller. Tour the manor house, where period artifacts and touchable reproductions bring to life the stories of the Philipse family and the enslaved community. Visit the activity center and explore the daily life and labor of the Manor’s diverse inhabitants. Hear the Manor’s history from the perspective of those who lived and toiled there.
For 2022, Philipsburg Manor will be open May 6 – November 13; Fridays-Sundays, as well as holiday Mondays (May 30, July 4, September 5, October 10). Guided tours are available between 10:30 AM-3:30 PM. Tickets are for timed entry.
