  • Lecture: Insurrection, Conspiracy, and Resistance in Colonial New York
    Apr 12, 7:00 PM
    Philipse Manor Hall, 29 Warburton Ave, Yonkers, NY 10701, USA
    Colonial New York City was the location for two large scale insurrections and conspiracies planned and enacted by the city’s sizable enslaved community. Not surprisingly, enslaved individuals of the Philipse family played a part in both plots.
  • Lecture: Banastre Tarleton & The War Around Westchester, 1778-1779
    Jun 14, 7:00 PM
    Online via Webex
    Even casual students of the American Revolution are familiar with the name Banastre Tarleton. Join us as we discuss the early career of Britain’s most famous cavalryman of the war and the actions fought in Westchester by his corps, the British Legion.

Philipse Manor Hall State Historic Site serves as a museum of history, art, and architecture, and a host to community organizations, educational programs, and special events. 

Philipse Manor Hall is one of the oldest historic sites in the United States. The manor house was built in the 1600’s by Frederick Philipse I, a Dutchman who amassed a fortune and eventually became lord of a 52,500-acre estate.

From guided tours to family movie nights, colonial game days, art exhibits, and more, our programs are designed to highlight the history of PMH, engage the community, inform, and entertain.

Philipse Manor Hall is a hub of activity in downtown Yonkers, just as it was more than 300 years ago when the Philipse family called it home.  With your help, we can strengthen and preserve the Manor Hall for generations yet to come.
