In the beautiful Hudson Valley Region of New York.
Lovingly and carefully restored to its Victorian beauty, the Woodstone Mansion is owned by Jay and Samantha Arondekar since they inherited this home just over a year ago. The Mansion was built by Samantha’s ancestors, Elias and Hetty Woodstone, who made their fortune with textile mills in the 1890s. Around seven to eight generations of Woodstones’ have lived in these halls, and your hosts want to share with you the life and home of one the great robber barons of the Late Nineteenth Century.
This 1870s historical home has a secret vault, and used to be the site of a Revolutionary War encampment. If you are a history buff, Samantha can tell you about many of the storied events and guests of this grand mansion, her family and the great parties that have happened on this property for millennia.
