About The Landmark

The landmark Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum is located within Pelham Bay Park in the Bronx. Pelham Bay Park is more than three times the size of Central Park and is the City’s largest park. Visitors enjoy Orchard Beach, two golf courses, bridle paths, hiking trails, 13-miles of saltwater shoreline along the Long Island Sound and the historic Bartow-Pell Mansion.

This building with Greek Revival interiors dates from 1836 and is an excellent example of country living in 19th-century New York. Experience the social and architectural history first hand with a guided tour, garden stroll and trail hikes, plus look for a variety of special events.

Visit Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum (bartowpellmansionmuseum.org) Public transportation via New York City: take the #6 Lexington Avenue Local subway to Pelham Bay Park Subway Station and take the Westchester Bee-line #45 bus.

A special thanks to Ellen Bruzelius and her staff at the Bartow-Pell Conservancy, we envy your beautiful work space. The Bartow-Pell Mansion is part of 23 historic houses within the Historic House Trust of New York City.
