Dr. Oliver Bronson House

The Dr. Oliver Bronson House was first built as a Federal-style residence for Samuel Plumb in 1812. The house and grounds were reinvented by architect Alexander Jackson Davis into a fully realized Romantic-Picturesque estate for Dr. Bronson and his family in two successive remodeling campaigns dating to 1839 and 1849. The house is the earliest extant design by Davis in the bracketed mode, and its dramatic setting framed by the Catskill mountains and the Hudson River fully expressed the romantic vision of the Hudson River School painters Thomas Cole and Frederic Church, who owned villas nearby.
