Glenview Historic Home

Welcome the Holidays with Victorian Decorations and Special Programs!

This year’s installation, which will be on view from November 29 through January 5, features garlands, baubles, and trees in each of the six period rooms, a table setting that incorporates Japanese decorative arts in the Dining Room, and new miniature decorations in Nybelwyck Hall Dollhouse.

Mourning in the Victorian Era and Glenview

During a time when infant mortality was high and doctors were unable to prevent the spread of disease, the act of mourning became a frequent and public affair—one that also spread to Glenview. A selection of the Museum’s collection of Victorian mourning items is on view through November 17.

The Goblins Are Back at Nybelwyck Hall

Nybelwyck Hall is decorated for the fall/Halloween season until Sunday, November 17. We are thrilled to partner with Darren T. Scala from D. Thomas Fine Miniatures, of Cold Spring, New York, and his minions of talented artists who have created a selection of seasonal miniatures to decorate this extraordinary dollhouse.

The Trevor Family

A philanthropist, John Bond Trevor was deeply involved with the local community, helping to build the Warburton Avenue Baptist Church and to found what eventually became St. John’s Riverside Hospital.

1923: Purchase of Glenview

Due to generous donations and strong interest, The Yonkers Museum collection outgrew the space provided in City Hall in just a few years. In 1923, Glenview, a Victorian mansion on the banks of the Hudson River, was offered for sale.

Winter Wonderland

Through December 30, the six period rooms of Glenview, our Gilded Age home on the National Register of Historic Places, are decked out with garlands, baubles, and trees. Don’t miss the new Victorian tablescape by interior designer Debra Blair.
