The Beautiful Grey’s Tower

So, a week ago, I visited beautiful Grey’s Tower in the Hudson Valley.. It was another mansion tour and if you know me, you know I love history. My obsession with mansion tours began a year ago when I first visited Lynnhurst, and a few others through an agency that does historic tours.

So, what was Grey’s Tower? Grey’s Tower was Gifford Pinchot’s house. Pinchot was the one of America’s first conservationists. This mansion was his house, designed with French château and a beautiful interior. The grounds were very well-kept. It included a pool where fruit floated, a fancy way to serve it. It was a very nice tour.
