Clermont was the Hudson River seat of the politically and socially prominent Livingston family of New York for more than 230 years. Seven successive generations of the family left their imprint on the architecture, room interiors, and landscape at Clermont.

The house now known as Crailo State Historic Site is an early Dutch home, probably built by Hendirck Van Rensselaer . Originally a part of the vast landholding called Rensselaerswyck, the area surrounding Crailo had been developed by Dutch settlers as early as the 1630s. When this property was inherited by Hendrick, it included the 1,500 acre Crailo estate, adjacent lands rented to tenant farmers, and a 60,000-acre tract down the river at Claverack. Hendrick received these lands in 1704 as his share in the Manor or Patroonship of Rensselaerswyck.

A family descendant, Susan DeLancey Van Rensselaer Strong, purchased the house in 1899, and in 1924 donated it to the State of New York for development as a museum. Between 1929 and 1933 the building underwent extensive renovation during which its appearance was again considerably altered.

Today, Crailo State Historic Site is a museum relating the history and influence of early Dutch settlement in the Upper Hudson Valley. Through its exhibits and special programs, Crailo explains how the rich Dutch colonial traditions have continued to mark the region for nearly four centuries. Open mid April thru October, Wednesday thru Saturday 10 to 5, Sunday 1 to 5.
