Vanderbilt Mansion will be closed to the public on Wednesday morning July 30th.
Signs will be installed at the Main and Coach House gates to inform the public of the temporary closure and will be removed when the park reopens. Park guests may wish to visit the Home of FDR or Eleanor Roosevelt’s Val-Kill in the morning.
Vanderbilt Mansion NHS, in terms of architecture, interiors, mechanical systems, road systems and landscape, is a remarkably complete example of a gilded-age country place, illustrating the political, economic, social, cultural, and demographic changes that occurred as America industrialized in the years after the Civil War.
