Sleepy Hollow, NY 01 Apr
Twenty acres of picturesque farmland and gardens surrounds Philipsburg Manor, located in Sleepy Hollow, New York, twenty miles north of Manhattan. A visit to Philipsburg manor will give you a glimpse of daily life on a manor typical of the mid-eighteenth century.
Tours of Philipsburg Manor take you through the Manor House, the gristmill, the Barn and the herb garden. Sheep roam freely on the property, lending a genuine feel of the era recreated.
The mill at Philipsburg Manor has a wooden water wheel that delivers power to the stones that grind the grain. The mill was built near the mouth of the Picantico River close to the Hudson. This enabled the Philipse’s to export the merchandise easily.
The vegetable and herb garden can be seen beside the manor house. The garden was used to grow vegetables for consumption. The herbs were grown for household use and medicinal purposes.
The tour of the house contains plenty of history about the original owners, the time period in which they lived, and their way of life. It includes real live demonstrations.
