Wooded parkland surrounds the ca. 1840 Bartow mansion, the only remaining 19th century country estate in the Pelham Bay area, once a popular rural retreat. Splendid Greek Revival interiors feature an impressive collection of furniture, paintings, and decorative arts in period rooms. Delano & Aldrich designed the recently restored ca. 1916 formal walled garden overlooking the Long Island Sound. The historic site also includes a 19th-century carriage house and an 18th-century Pell family cemetery.
