A quaint village 80 miles north of Manhattan, this area is home to horse farms, antique shops and fine cuisine. According to the Village of Millbrook, there are more than 20 dining establishments within a 10-mile radius.
Historians note the town was settled by Quakers in the mid-18th century and was originally made of two settlement areas: Hart's Village and the hamlet of Mechanic. The current Village of Millbrook was developed around the Dutchess and Columbia railroad station, which was located on the village green. The station was built in 1870 on the lands of Issac Merritt, who then laid out the streets as we know them today.
Millbrook is the location of the Mary Flagler Cary Arboretum, now known as the Cary Institute for Ecosystem Studies. The area contains meadows, forests, hills and trout streams as well as many popular walking trails. Innisfree Gardens in Millbrook is recognized as one of the world’s 10-best gardens and a powerful icon of mid-20th century design. Millbrook Vineyard & Winery offers personal tours and wine tasting.
