3rd Annual House Tour

River to River: The Town of Esopus
From the Rondout & Wallkill to the Hudson

This WVLT house tour featured a rich variety of homes highlighting the Town’s distinctive terrain. It included early stone houses bordering the Rondout Creek and Wallkill River; glimpses of Rifton’s Civil War-era industrial past; a Quaker farmhouse on the ‘Old Post Road’ between the Black Creek and Swartekill watersheds; and several stylish examples of 19th-century country-house architecture with majestic views of the Hudson. The tour concluded with a visit to the grounds of John Burroughs’ “Riverby” and a viewing of the great naturalist’s “bark” study (a precursor to “Slabsides”), followed by a reception at the Global Palate restaurant in West Park.
