Dear Past and Prospective Country Seats Tour Participant, Hudson River Heritage will not host a Country Seats Tour in October 2013. For our Silver Anniversary tour, our intent is to focus on some of the most significant houses in the Hudson River National Historic Landmark District, a district founded largely through the efforts of Hudson River Heritage some thirty years ago. This year many of these "favorites" are undergoing renovations, now that the economy is showing signs of improvement, while many others have been pressed into service for private events that help underwrite the considerable costs of maintenance, taxes, etc. So our board is directing its efforts to lining up a stellar roster of properties for the 2014 "Silver Anniversary" tour. Thank you for your loyalty and past support. We deeply appreciate our friends and visitors, and look forward to seeing you back for the Country Seats Tour next year.
