Originally located near Montrose, Boscobel was completed in 1808 by Elizabeth Corne Dyckman, the wife of States Morris Dyckman, a Loyalist, who served in the British Quartermaster’s Department during the Revolutionary War. A descendant served as an officer in the Civil War.   The site is interested in hosting more living history events. To learn more about Boscobel see http://www.boscobel.org/.
