Historic Cherry Hill

Historic Cherry Hill tells a story of America through the lives and experiences of five generations of an Albany, New York family. One of Albany's most recognizable landmarks, Cherry Hill, built in 1787 for Philip and Maria Van Rensselaer, is rare among this country's house museums. Its extensive and intact collection is unique. It includes more than 70,000 items-decorative arts and furnishings, books, diaries, documents, clothing and household textiles, and other objects reflecting daily life-all related to the family that lived in the home between 1787 and 1963.
