Hamilton fever is coming to Albany!

We at Schuyler Center are so excited for the myriad of events happening in Albany next month featuring Alexander Hamilton and the Schuyler family! Here’s a quick overview:

Saratoga National Historical Park – Schuyler House
Season: Saturday, May 25th 2019 through Sunday, October 6th 2019
Hours: 10am – 4pm, Wednesday – Sunday
This estate was the country home of General Philip Schuyler, Louisa Lee Schuyler’s great-great grandfather, both before and after the Battles of Saratoga. The British burned the original house and its outbuildings during their retreat. The present house, erected in 1777 shortly after Burgoyne’s surrender, was the center of Schuyler’s extensive farming and milling operations.
