Our first stop is the stately 1820s Neoclassical home of Captain David Crawford, a civic leader and maritime entrepreneur who played a key role in Newburgh's transition from small riverside community to thriving shipping and industrial city. Overlooking the Hudson River, the house, now managed as a museum by the Historical Society of Newburg Bay & the Highlands,  reflected Crawford's wealth and stature in the community. 

After touring the Crawford House, we will lunch at Billy Joe’s Ribworks, a popular riverfront restaurant. We will then board the Pride of the Hudson for a narrated historic and scenic two-hour cruise. Sights we will see include Mt. Beacon, the highest mountain between the Atlantic seaboard and the Catskills, where gigantic fires were set during the Revolution to warn Washington that the British were coming; Bannerman Island, where Francis Bannerman, one of the world’s largest arms dealers, built a castle to house his workers and family, as well as his extensive arsenal; Storm King Mountain and Breakneck Mountain; and the northern end of West Point, near where Washington laid the great chain to blockade the river.
