Visit here to participate in hands-on activities of the 18th century and learn the riveting yet little-known story of enslavement in the colonial north.

  • I did enjoy the tour to the Philipsburg Manor for its story, beauty and friendly staff. This tour teaches the story of the manor around 1750 and the people that lived there. The tour was of 4 parts, the mill where the flour was done, the kitchen where the butter and meals were prepared, the barn where the wheat was processed and stored, and finally the oven where the dry bread was cooked and then sold for the army or the ships. Every part was given for a different person and each of them were so knowledgeable and enthusiastic.
  • We had a beautiful day to enter into the Year 1750. They had 23 slaves who worked on the farm. We learned about their jobs. It was a very educated tour. They have a gift shop. They welcome bus tours. It’s not for scooters and wheelchairs. The house and grist mill has steps to walk. Bathrooms are in the gift shop. The Manor is in the town of Sleepy Hollow.
