Crailo State Historic Site

Historic Site

blank dot

The Crailo State Historic Site is a historic, fortified brick manor house located at 9 Riverside Ave, Rensselaer, NY. It was originally part of a large patroonship held by Kiliaen van Rensselaer. The present-day Crailo State Historic Site is what remains of the home and estate of the Hendrick Van Rensselaer family. By the early 18th century, the house was the seat of Hendrick's manor, a holding that consisted of 1,500 acres in what is currently the city of Rensselaer plus another 60,000 acres in and around the village of Claverack. The site has reopened to the public and is open Wednesday through Sunday from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm. The site has a boating facility on the Hudson River. The boat launch is the one of several in the area to be renewed under the Hudson Eagles Recreation Area, an initiative to improve public access and resiliency on the wild stretch of the Hudson between Kingston and Albany and enhance connections to the waterfront communities in the region.
