Vanguard Designer Showhouse 2019 is at this incredible home originally constructed by John Tayler, an early Albany Mayor in 1790 and later elected NYS Lt. Governor. There have been additions and interior changes that enhanced the basic structure and added to its fascinating historical significance. Our professional designers will showcase their creative talents during our Showhouse days, April 30 to May 19.

This particular tour, given by the owner, Doug Bauer, will take you through the attic, the hidden places, and the basement. Do you have an interest in seeing the original downstairs fireplace and the foundation? Do you have a curiosity about how servants might have managed this house, serving dinner to Alexander Hamilton in 1804? Would Eleanor have poked around the obscure house corners with her friend, Marjorie Nott, great granddaughter of Eliphalet Nott, inventor and President of Union College? Can you imagine yourself walking on the same wide planked floors that they trod?

You will want to buy your tickets early for this after-hours tour because it will be limited in numbers.

TICKETS INCLUDE SHOWHOUSE ENTRANCE.
