A Message From Executive Director Jennifer Carlquist

April 29th, 2020

Dear friends and supporters,

I hope that you are safe and healthy at home.

Pre-coronavirus, Boscobel was hard at work planning to launch on May 1 an exciting season of programs on Hudson Valley design, history, and nature for our growing, increasingly diverse audience. As you may know, at this time museums like Boscobel are among the many businesses that are prohibited from opening to the public, and so we’ve pushed back that date in accordance government restrictions and community health guidelines.

In the meantime, Boscobel is able to offer health care workers and members limited access to our grounds and gardens, scheduled in advance for one household at a time. If you are a health care worker or member who would like to soak in our view, hike the Woodland Trail, and spot the gardens’ latest blooms, advance reservations are available by emailing Director of Visitor Engagement Ed Glisson at

Boscobel, originally built as a farmhouse, is proud to play a part in supporting the food supply chain by hosting the Cold Spring Farmers’ Market once again, starting this Saturday, May 2. CSFM is (rightfully) deemed an essential business and is therefore permitted to operate even now. For more details, please click here.

We applaud the CSFM for supporting local farmers and securing nourishing food for our community.

Please note that for now, Boscobel must remain closed to the public except under the terms mentioned above. I look forward to updating you as we are able to expand access gradually, hopefully in the weeks to come. It will be a happy day when we can fully open our gates again and share this extraordinary place with everyone who loves it.  Until then, and most importantly, stay safe and stay well.

With thanks for your continued support of Boscobel,

Jennifer Carlquist

Executive Director and Curator
