Significance: Dramatically situated along the Hudson River, Montgomery Place was a showplace during the 19th century, widely known for its richly ornamented Federal house and extensive pleasure grounds. The original house with its delicate interior details was built in 1802 for Janet Livingston Montgomery, widow of General Richard Montgomery. The house was enlarged by the well-know architect, Alexander Jackson Davis, who added an elaborate portico and complex decorative scheme to the exterior. Montgomery Place is one of twenty-one contiguous estates along the east bank of the Hudson River between Stratsburg and Tivoli, New York. The land, originally part of the Beekman patent and then the Livingston estate, Clermont, was given to Janet Livingston Montgomery by her parents, Judge Robert and Margaret Beekman Livingston.
