A place for Cultural Activities
You can take in centuries-old homes, cobblestone streets, antique shops and art galleries in the many small towns dotting the banks of the Hudson. Then there’s the scenic and architectural majesty of Olana in Hudson, NY, home to Fredrick Church, one of America’s foremost artists. The Thomas Cole House, also known as Cedar Grove or the Thomas Cole National Historic Site, is a National Historic Landmark that includes the home and the studio of painter Thomas Cole, founder of the world-famous Hudson River School of American art. There are hundreds of attractions, festivals, arts and craft fairs, flea markets, and scenic byways to enjoy.
