A Look Inside Grasmere

Janet Livingston Montgomery is famous for building what is now known as Montgomery Place.  But before that happened, she lived with her husband in nearby Rhinebeck.  Although her old house burned in 1805, Peter Livingston built a new one in its place in the 1820s, and that Grasmere is still standing.  If you like peeking into old houses as much as I do, check out this great blog, which includes a terrific architectural tour of this old Livingston mansion:  New York Social Diary.
