Notes
Survey number HABS NY-5623
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-309).
Building/structure dates: 1815 initial construction
Significance: Occupying a site adjacent to the Hudson River, this fine mansion with its unusual plan has remained within the Livingston family since its construction. Begun in 1811 and finished after the War of 1812 for General John Armstrong, Jr., La Bergerie was a large square Federal style house. The house received a library with tower, mansard roof and service wing in 1857-1858. Landscaping was carried out by Hans Jacob Ehlers during the 1840s and was improved by Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr., in 1909-1912. Rokeby is one of twenty-one contiguous estates along the east bank of the Hudson River between Stratsburg and Tivoli, New York.
