This house is a quadruple hit. For general interest, the location is stunning and worth visiting for its beautiful grounds and view of the Catskills, the Hudson River, and the Berkshires. The house itself is an exotic folly, also worth seeing simply for the architecture. For students of art, this is across the river from the home of Thomas Cole, founder of the Hudson River School, and itself the home of Frederick Church, Cole's most successful student and protege. It also has art from many periods right up to this year. On top of that, this is a treasure because it remained intact with all of the furnishings and art right up to the time it was transferred to the state as a museum, so it is a great time capsule.
