Historical Significance:

The General Peter Gansevoort Chapter, NSDAR, is most fortunate to own the historic Van Schaick Mansion, Cohoes, NY, which in September 2008, was placed on the NYS Heritage Trail of the American Revolution. The Van Schaick Mansion, on the National Register of Historic Places, served as the headquarters of the Continental Army in the months preceding the Battles of Saratoga in l777. As such, it hosted 5,000 –10,000 Continental Soldiers and the leadership of the war. As stewards of the Van Schaick Mansion, we have the privilege of keeping its story alive. By immersing our youth and our members in our projects involving the mansion, we believe we help them appreciate the importance of working to keep the past alive.

Acknowledgements: The Van Scaick Mansion is owned, operated, and maintained by the General Peter Gansevoort Chapter, NSDAR. It is available for a docent led tour by appointment.
