The Story
of The Manor

Within three miles of The PowerPlant stands The Manor, a grand turn-of-the-century estate still rich in the details commissioned by mining tycoon and investor, William Boyce Thompson. In 1912, Thompson hired Carrère and Hastings to design his weekend riverside home – alongside those of his fellow financiers -- in the Renaissance Revival style. He named it Alder Manor, after his hometown of Alder Gulch, Montana.

The Manor, sits on over 6 acres of classically inspired historic gardens with many authentic Roman artifacts imported from Italy in the early 1900’s. The historic manor includes 72 rooms many with the original renaissance paintings and historic artifacts. The Cliff House will be carved into the cliff of the property directly overlooking the Hudson River.

Revitalized as The Manor, this historic building will be reimagined as a convening space for events, workshops, public art and gatherings that engage entrepreneurs, innovators, scientists, artists, youth and governments engaged with climate solutions.
