Former NY State Governor Nelson Rockefeller called Boscobel “one of the most beautiful homes ever built in America.” National media mogul Martha Stewart featured Boscobel in Living magazine’s American Treasures section. And Boscobel itself rests on a bluff, dutifully overlooking The United States Military Academy at West Point. So what better Hudson Valley location is there for celebrating America’s birthday than at Boscobel?
Monday July 4th from 7 to 9 pm at Boscobel will include a 20-piece jazz orchestra, The Big Band Sound, fresh grilled food by Inn Credible Caterers Chalet On The Hudson, and weather permitting, there will be one of the best views of the West Point Band’s fireworks display in the area.
Visitors should pack chairs, blankets and a picnic. Gates open at 6 pm for picnicking. Adults $16, Senior $14, Children (6-14) $9, Children under 6 FREE. Friends of Boscobel adults are just $14.
