Join us on the luxury motorcoach, equipped with lavatory and microphone, as we again travel upstate to explore key sites in American history.

We will visit Clermont, the Hudson River seat of New York's prominent Livingston family. The accomplishments of Robert R. Livingston Jr., Clermont's most notable resident, include drafting the Declaration of Independence, serving as first U.S. Minister of Foreign Affairs, administering the oath of office to George Washington, negotiating the Louisiana Purchase, and developing steamboat technology with Robert Fulton. Designated a National Historic Landmark in 1973, Clermont is a New York State Historic Site and part of the Hudson River National Landmark District.

After a delicious box lunch by Cascades of Hudson, NY, 
we will travel to Montgomery Place, a 380 acre estate overlooking the Hudson River set amid rolling lawns, woodlands, and gardens against the spectacular backdrop of the Catskill Mountains. The Montgomery Place estate was owned by members of the Livingston family from 1802 until the 1980s. Bard College acquired the property in 2016.
