The Ten Broeck Mansion has an on-going process of preservation and restoration work of the 1798 Ten Broeck Mansion and surrounding 4 acres of land remaining of the original 1764 land plot of 5 acres.
To guide our work on historic structures and landscape, the ACHA has two recent professional research reports following the standards of the US Secretary of the Interior:
- Cultural Landscape Report for the Ten Broeck Mansion by Martha Lyon, ASLA (2021)
- Historic Structure Report for the Ten Broeck Mansion by Walter R. Wheeler (2019)
The ACHA also seeks community input and feedback for its planning and prioritization processes. The ACHA is currently focusing its preservation work on the following areas:
- stabilization of water infiltration issues
- preservation and restoration of living spaces for enslaved persons and servants, including attic and basement spaces
- improvements for ADA accessibility
- landscape and grounds improvements, following the research and recommendations in our 2021 Cultural Landscape Report
