Must See: Interact with the Vanderbilt Mansion.
December 19, 2016
On November 29, 2016, 8th graders in Ms. Furnia's class at Van Wyck Junior High School (Wappingers) visited Vanderbilt Mansion in Hyde Park. They were treated to a thorough and informative tour by Ranger Mike, where they learned about the home of Frederick and Louise Vanderbilt, and the time period known as the Gilded Age. Click here to see a virtual tour created by Technology Integration Specialist Mrs. Horton. In it, you will find creative, humorous, and informative pieces of writing by the students who explained the role certain objects had in the home, or imagined what their thoughts or conversations would have been like.
