We are delighted to announce our gardens are re-open as of April 3, 2023.
The Albany County Historical Association/Ten Broeck Mansion is delighted to announce the resumption of access to the Ten Broeck Mansion gardens on Monday April 3, after the recent extensive vandalism at our site. Vandals broke garden structures, broke electrical equipment, and very sadly both of our custom-built children’s education kiosks have been damaged, with the larger completely destroyed. An 18th century artifact was also damaged.
As the stewards of a historic landscape dating back to 1764, the ACHA has been proud to provide community enjoyment of our gardens. Due to hours of hard work by staff and volunteers, we will be able to hold our April 7 Easter Egg Hunt. We appreciate your understanding and support of our nonprofit community-centered museum.
The ACHA thanks our community for the outpouring of support at this difficult time.
We thank our staff for their dedication and many hours of hard physical labor to clean up our site. We thank Marty Bannan, Margaret Diggs, Bruce Houser, Eric Johnson, Tim Kosto, Carl Morrone, Vida Wehren, Karen Urbanski, Linda Weiss, and Dennis Younge for their help rebuilding our gardens.
We also thank the Albany Rural Cemetery, Capital District Library Council, Historic Albany Foundation, New York State Legislature, Old Stone Fort Museum, St. Peter’s Church, Ten Broeck Triangle Preservation League, and Woman’s Club of Albany for their gifts of in-kind services.
The ACHA thanks the following donors for their generosity:
