Located right on route 9, is Phillipsburgh Manor. This is a living musuem of a farm and grist mill. The great thing about this place is that it is hands on. The actors encourage visitors to help feed the animals, lay down the bedding, round the animals up for the day, make food, tend the fields etc. The day we went they were making butter and sea biscuts. Patrick was able to feed the lambs and lay down the bedding for the baby oxen. He didn't want to leave. The main house was closed for rennovations, but we'll see that next time. The cost is a bit steep, $12.00 for adults and $6.00 for children 5 and older. Luckily Patrick was free still.
This is some wonderful place -- a beautiful small church funded by Rockefeller money with stain glass windows honoring members of the Rockefeller family. This place has brilliant colored light dancing in shades of pink yellow blue green all over the building as if floods through the stained-glass windows by impressionist masters Henri Matisse and Marc Chagall. This is a peaceful place also a new organ was given in the last year to the church which is really special.
Open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday 11:00am - 5:00pm, Saturday 10:00am-5:00pm, Sunday 2:00pm-5:00pm , unless church activities are being held.
I have had a love of lighthouses since I was a young girl. So whenever I have a chance to visit one I grab it. The Sleepy Hollow Lighthouse can be seen as you cross the Tappan Zee Bridge, but it's best seen from Kingsland Park. The light house began construction in 1882, and was finished in 1883. It was once known as the Tarrytown Lighthouse or the Kingsland Point Lighthouse. This lighthouse is the only Caisson-style lighthouse on the river. Like most lighthouses, this one was used as a navigational aid to ships on the Hudson River. It warned captains away from the dangerous shoals on the river's eastern shore. The lighthouse is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. When touring it you can see exhibits of logbooks, chronicles, photographs and furnishings. The lighthouse is furnished to depict the way life was over 100 years ago. Guided tours for groups are available by reservation only. Admission to the lighthouse is $5 ($4 for seniors and children)
This is a wonderful park located along the Hudson River in Sleepy Hollow. When we visited back in April there were several soccer games going on. There is a playground area for the children, a walkway to stroll along the river, picnic tables, bar-b-que pits and many other recreational opportunities for individuals, families and groups. While here make sure to visit the historic Tarrytown Lighthouse.
