This northern plantation at Saratoga served as Schuyler's "economic engine"


Check our operating hours to see when the Schuyler House is open. 

Built in 1777, this northern plantation was the economic engine showcasing Philip Schuyler's wealth and success. Enslaved people and paid laborers worked in the timber mills, flax mills, grist mills, gardens, and herring fishery, providing the income to sustain this upper class family. Today, the estate stands as a testament to those who toiled, and to evolving times.


During its open season, visitors can explore the house as a self-guided experience with staff and volunteers on hand to answer questions. The length of your experience is entirely up to you, but the average visit is between 20-30 minutes. When the house is closed to the public, the grounds are open for exploration between sunrise and sunset.

The house is open seasonally, please call (518) 670-2985 for more details.

All are welcome!
