The HermitageThe Hermitage

The Hermitage, a National Historic Landmark and house museum, incorporates a stone house that was visited during the Revolutionary War by General George Washington. It was also the site of the marriage of Aaron Burr and Theodosia Prevost. Its picturesque Gothic Revival design dates to the 1847–48 renovation by the architect William H. Ranlett. 

Guided Tours: Wednesday through Sunday beginning at 1:15, 2:15 and 3:15 pm.
