A Taste of History

1812 Room Project

The ACHA has been working to re-interpret the northeast bedroom in the Ten Broeck Mansion into an 1830s-era bedchamber. The room will tell the story of a veteran general of the War of 1812. Features of the room will include items a soldier at that time may have collected during his military service and after, including a broadside outlining Independence Day activities in 1817 Albany. The Daughters of 1812 will re-dedicate the room in May.

Major Renovations at Ten Broeck Mansion

If you haven't been to the Ten Broeck Mansion in a while it's time to plan another visit! Thanks to a generous $10,000 donation from the DAR, ACHA was able to make over $20,000 in repairs and restorations of the historic 1798 Ten Broeck Mansion. This included repairing and painting all of the Mansion's windows and restoration of two bathrooms and two bedrooms on the second floor. We're thrilled to share some photos of the work with you, but it doesn't compare to seeing it in person! 

Funding for this project was made possible through the 

sponsorship of the New York State Organization, 

National Society Daughters of the American Revolution
