Spent many sunsets overlooking the Hudson river perched in the pines amongst the sculpture garden. Fascinating that Boyce Thompson named the mansion Alder Manor, after his original home in Alder Gulch, Montana. He was a millionaire in 1906, at the age of 40. He developed the Boyce Thompson Arboretum in Superior Arizona, also acquiring the Magma mine in Superior. A stellar example of architecture along the Hudson River.
I remember when I was a student at Elizabeth Seton College from 1979-1981 and the mansion was part of the school. The mansion contained some classrooms and housed some of the nuns who taught there. It was an absolutely beautiful campus.
Amazing place, so much history. Too bad time has taken a toll on all the gorgeous art work and details along the walls.
