Visit Hill-Hold and Brick House Museums and see what life was like on a Hudson Valley farm in the 1830’s. This was still the era of candlelight, fireplace heat, homegrown food and homespun clothing. The stone farmhouse was built in 1769 with wide plank floors, handsome paneling and huge fireplaces. It was the home of prosperous farmer, Thomas Bull, and his family.
Built in the 1760’s, historic Hill-Hold and Brick House Museums reflect the lives of two family homesteads in the New York State Hudson River Valley. Both museums are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Hill-Hold Museum is located in Campbell Hall, New York. Built in 1769, the historic stone farmhouse has a working farm, a one-room schoolhouse, summer kitchen, herb garden, smoke house, historic barn, and farm animal exhibits.
Hill-Hold and Brick House Museums also offers their Outreach Workshops an opportunity to bring life on Hill-Hold into the classroom. Students will learn how to make soap, candles, yarn dolls and even churn butter!
