The painstakingly preserved former home of Frederic Edwin Church is now a museum hung with his paintings and those of his contemporaries from the Hudson River School, the romantic 19th-century movement. The exterior is thematically Middle Eastern, and the mixed motifs of the rooms inside reflect Church’s extensive world travels. Tours are offered at specific times, but you can also tour the expansive hilltop grounds yourself—check out the mobile self-guided tour you can download online.
