Skene Manor

“Castle on The Hill”

This Victorian Gothic-style mansion, built in 1874 by Italian stonecutters for NYS Supreme Court Justice Joseph Potter, overlooks the harbor and the surrounding village of Whitehall, New York. Constructed of native stone blocks, this magnificent structure bespeaks a turn-of-the-century craftsmanship rarely duplicated today. In May of 1974, it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places through the efforts of the Historical Society of Whitehall. It is now owned by a non-profit corporation, Whitehall Skene Manor Preservation Inc. Experience the grandeur that exemplified turn-of-the-century wealth and enjoy incredible views from the grounds. Browse the gift shop and enjoy a cup of tea or lunch in the tea room. The manor is open for free tours by trained docents. Donations appreciated.

Open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays (April – December) 12-4PM.
