Boscobel was originally built from 1804-1808. The project was conceived and initiated by States Morris Dyckman, a Loyalist, who made his fortune working for British quartermasters during the Revolutionary War. States died in 1806 with only the foundation for Boscobel in place. The project was completed by his wife Elizabeth Corne Dyckman, who lived in the house until her death in 1823.

Boscobel was originally built 15 miles down the river in Montrose, New York. After it faced demolition in the 1950s, the house was moved and reconstructed on the current site thanks to the efforts of a group of pioneers of the preservation movement.

Currently, Boscobel is home to one of the nationís leading collections of furniture and decorative arts from the Federal period. It offers a variety of rich cultural, educational and recreational programs. It is one of the areaís favorite destinations, for tourists and locals alike.
