What They Are about
Built between 1804 and 1808, Boscobel was originally the dream house of wealthy Loyalists. By the 1950s, after falling into disrepair, it was demolished. Preservationists saved as many architectural fragments as possible and reassembled them fifteen miles north, where the Neoclassical mansion was restored back to—and even beyond—its original grandeur.
Though its history and original inhabitants are fascinating, the house is much more than historic. Boscobel was saved as a beautiful work of art.
