I went to visit the Van Cortlandt House during the holiday season and take the self guided tour which I had not done in almost three years. It was a beautiful warm afternoon for a winter day and it was nice to tour the grounds and take pictures.

It was a little disappointing as the house was not decorated as much as it had been in the past. There was garland and a few bows but not the traditional decorations in the past. The house was not set up for the "Revolutionary Christmas" that it had been three years earlier but COVID changed the way these houses were run and decorated. It depends on the number of volunteers. Still it was interesting to see how the Van Cortlandts lived and how the estate was run.

On the main floors , there was garland and bows decorating the downstairs rooms but the Dining Room was not decorated like before and set up for Christmas lunch. Still it was interesting to go room by room and see how the family lived and the day to say like of the family. There could have been a bit more information on the family and the generations who lived there but it was not available.

They did open the slaves quarters in the house and showed how the servants lived. Very sad! Even though they were slaves, these are the people running your household and they should have been treated better. It was an eye opener on how society worked back then.

The Van Cortlandt House like a lot of historical homes needs some work and some fundraising to help it. Still it is an interesting self-guided tour and should not be missed.

The Van Cortlandt House Museum is a truly remarkable historic gem of Bronx, New York.

The Van Cortlandt House is the oldest building in the Bronx, and it is a Georgian style mansion that dates back to 18th Century New York, a time in which slavery was legal and heavily practiced.

The home itself was said to have been built by African slaves for the Van Cortlandt Family, a prominent mercantile family, whom founded and operated a grist and plantation mill on the property.

When visiting the Van Cortlandt museum in June of 2018, my wife and I were impressed by the house’s carefully preserved Georgian style details.

We also viewed and learned much about the multiple furnishings and materials that belonged to the Van Cortlandt Family.

Being African Americans, both my wife and I were of course understandably sensitive and saddened to learn about the house’s connection to slavery and the life and treatment of the slaves that worked and lived on the property.

For those that enjoy visiting historic homes, learning about 18th Century New York, and it’s Dutch heritage, the Van Cortlandt House Museum is definitely a top destination to visit and sightsee!!!

My wife and I visited Van Cortlandt Park and came upon Van Cortlandt House Museum. The museum provides a self guided tour. It is very well organized.
The house itself is in very good condition and in many ways beautifully decorated.
We visited the park and found the House to be open by accident.
It was a happy experience.

The Van Cortlandt House is a wonderful place to experience what Christmas was like during and post-Revolutionary War. Remember that the Federalist period is very different from the Victorian Age with its post Civil War excesses and new traditions. It was after the war years when the country was still developing.

So Christmas at this time was more natural decorations of pine garlands, holly and mistletoe. The house is decorated with beautiful traditional wreaths and garland on the outside as well. The manor house had many different activities for the holidays that were earlier in the month so you have to watch their website to see when they have special events.

The house is charming and is fun to tour because it is not really busy. The house has all sorts of corners and niches and if you understand old Dutch families, you understand how the house works. There is different sleeping quarters for adults and children and the use of natural light in the house.

In the summer, the house is open air and nicely landscaped. It is a lot of fun to visit when you are up in the Bronx. It is fun during Christmas.

Interesting self guided tour of lovely early American Dutch family house filled with interesting furniture; cloaks; uniforms; maps and a dollhouse. Curator was extremely lively and knowledgeable about family and early American revolutionary era history. Definitely worth a brief stop off the roadways going through the Bronx.

It was, I was told, the first museum opened in NYC!
the visit of this mansion, at the edge of Van Cortland Park, is very interesting, the story of the Van Cortlands breathtaking, like a novel, the rooms, furniture, clothes of the time very mind fetching.

This was way down on my bucket list, but low and behold, a surprising gem in the Bronx. We luckily were able to tag along on a tour with David, who was the most informed tour guide ever! He talked about every little bit of history of the Revolution that we had not heard before and described all the objects in the house and their uses in the 1700's. This was great for antique road show fans. If you can get David as your guide do it! Otherwise, you will receive printed material for a self-guided tour. Be aware there is street parking, on Saturday no meters were enforced, but we had difficulty finding a space. Pay attendion to the parking information on the website. You can go to the golf course parking lot and walk, or take the #1 train from Manhattan or Bronx, and the entrance is right there. Well worth it.

Yes, George did sleep here, but more than that, this house is a significant slice of Bronx history and very well preserved. The tour guides are informative and the location in Van Cortlandt Park is well worth the trip, easily by #1 train from downtown Manhattan.

The Van Cortlandt mansion is a historical gem that should not be missed by anyone interested in the colonial and revolutionary history of NYC and the country as a whole.
The house hosted Washington, Rochambeau, Tarleton and the future King William IV.
In addition the Van Cortlandt family played a significant role in the history of New Amsterdam and New York. The interior of the house is beautifully restored. It’s an easy ride to the northern end of Line 1.
