Philipsburg Manor in Sleepy Hollow, NY (Weekend Reflections #5)


Philipsburg Manor

It's 1750, and Philipsburg Manor is a farming, milling, and trading center owned by the Philipses, a family of Anglo-Dutch merchants. They rent land to tenant farmers of diverse European backgrounds and rely on a community of 23 enslaved Africans to operate the complex.

Enjoy the reflections here in this post and then go over to James at Newtown Daily Photo for other participants.

A beautiful image with soft reflections!
I thought that looked like a mill house. Is there a waterwheel on the other side?
You've been visiting some wonderful places lately Mary. :)

Very interesting architecture. There is timelessness in the image. Are those people tourists? I like the green around the mansion.

Very inviting and sleepy. You've nailed the colors.

Gorgeous shot Mary! In all the years I have made trips through that part of NY on my way to CT, I have thought about taking the backroads along the Hudson, but never made the time to do it. Sleepy Hollow is still on my list of places to visit some day.

Interesting historical focus for a fantastic reflection photo. What a lovely place!

A very nice composition where the gradually disappearing reflection of the house has a very nice effect.

VioletSky said...

Lovely picture. interesting how that building looks distinctly like a mill, even without the waterwheel.

Hi mary, this is a lovely shot, love the little manor house and would be so great to rent it for a while with the beautiful water surrounding it. Sorry, I missed sepia this week. :) Thanks too for supporting Tink at TWTW.

If it was not for the history...
