The "Mayor's Garden" History of the Ten Broeck Mansion & Gardens
This presentation shares the history of the 1798 Ten Broeck Mansion and its grounds and its connections to Albany and regional history. From exploring the many plants imported from around the world to museum collections reflecting our region's place in a global economy, this program shares how relevant the history of this historic site is to our region. The Ten Broeck Mansion, operated by the Albany County Historical Association as a community-centered museum and gardens, has been open to the public for 75 years.
