Historic Hudson Valley (Pocantico Hills, NY 10591-1203)
Margaret Vetare (Project Director: September 2005 to present)

American Arcadia: People, Landscape, and Nature at Montgomery Place

Planning to develop a reinterpretation of Montgomery Place, a National Historic Landmark in the Hudson Valley, exploring the changing relationships among people, landscape, and nature.

Historic Hudson Valley proposes a reinterpretation of Montgomery Place, a National Historic Landmark in Annandale, NY, that focuses on the changing relationship between people, landscape, and nature over time. Consulting scholars will help develop themes such as the function of the arts in conveying cultural attitudes toward the land, the role of wilderness in the American consciousness, and the influence of women in shaping the landscape. Scholars will advise on integrating the estate’s extensive landscape into the visitor experience. By interpreting the actions of a variety of individuals who populated the estate between 1800 and 1950, we will bring a historical perspective to the conversation on humanity and nature in America.
