Philip J. Schuyler, a Revolutionary War general, entrepreneur, and US Senator along with his wife, Catherine Van Rensselaer, "Kitty," built this Georgian home on a bluff overlooking the Hudson River between 1761-62.
The couple went on to have fifteen children but only eight survived to adulthood, Angelica, Elizabeth, Margarite "Peggy", John, Philip, Rensselaer, Cornelia and Catherine. Their second child, Elizabeth, married Alexander Hamilton in Schuyler Mansion's parlor on December 14, 1780. Once married, Elizabeth and Alexander would visit Schuyler Mansion often.
The mansion was registered as a National Historic Landmark in 1967.
This ¾" thick wooden replica is handcrafted in the U.S. to reflect its historical features. It can set neatly on a shelf, wainscoting, or window/door trim to remind you of a special place you've visited or dream of visiting someday. A short description is written on the back. Look for Casper, our mascot black cat, taking up residence within the design. This is the sign of an authentic Cat’s Meow!
