Overlooking the Hudson River in Poughkeepsie New York, the 200-acre Locust Grove Estate includes an Italianate villa designed in 1851 for artist and inventor Samuel F. B. Morse by architect A. J. Davis.  Today the estate, with miles of carriage roads, landscaped grounds, historic gardens and Hudson River views, is an independent not-for-profit museum and nature preserve established by Annette Innis Young, whose inherited collections of art and antiques are exhibited in the mansion’s 25 rooms.

Guided mansion tours will resume on weekends in April, but you can still enjoy the Visitor Center galleries, museum shop, and hiking trails on winter weekdays.
