Manor House Chapter meetings are called to order by the sound of the Manor House Gavel. The head of the gavel was made from a worm-eaten beam of the original house and the handle carved from a piece of the old stair-rail.


Manor House was named for the 18th century Van Cortlandt Manor, Croton-on-Hudson, New York. The Manor began with the initial royal charter for lands given to Stephanus Van Cortlandt by King William III in 1697.  His grandson, Pierre Van Cortlandt, built  the stone and brick manor house in the 1750s.  During the Revolution, Pierre was an active Patriot leader in New York and his son Philip was commissioned as an officer in a Patriot regiment. The story of the Van Cortlandts and their role in the Revolution can be found on the
Historic Hudson Valley website.

 

The Manor has been extensively restored and is now a part of the Historic Hudson Valley.  The Manor House is open to the public and there are many different activities during the year.
