There are dozens and dozens of famous homes in Upstate New York that are open to the public for tours. They cover a wide swath of American history and shine the light on famous writers, politicians, folk legends, and New York State icons. All are open to the public for tours.
The homes on this list can be found from the Hudson Valley through the Catskills and Adirondacks and out to Western New York.

These homes range from splendid mansions, to farmhouses, to rustic homemade dwellings. Each tells a vivid story of a chapter of New York and American history.
Some of the stories of these places are already famous, others you may be hearing about for the first time. History lovers...these are all bucket list worthy!
