    Bartow-Pell Mansion MuseumBartow-Pell Mansion Museum Bronx, New York
    This mansion has become a New York City landmark and museum that is situated on the northern part of Pelham Bay Park in the Bronx that had been the home of Marie Lorillard and Robert Bartow that date back to 1654. The Lords of the Manor of Pelham had owned the house that would be enlarged, restored and remodeled in the Federal style, although the present house was constructed between 1836 and 1841, with the ownership passing between the Bartow and Pell families until it would be sold to the city of New York in 1888 by the descendants of the Bartow family. The mansion would be unused and empty for many years before it was leased by the city to Mrs. Charles Frederick Hoffman, Jr. in 1914 to house the International Garden Club, Inc., an organization that she had founded that would promote formal gardens and has now extended its scope to include the preservation and restoration of the mansion. The exterior has been restored and the formal gardens built during the period from 1914 to 1917 and in 1936, Mayor Fiorello La Guardia would use the mansion as his summer residence while he waited for Orchard Beach to be constructed. The interior is furnished with period antiques, and reopened in 1946, and includes the burial plot of the Pell family. In 1978 it would be designated as a National Historic Landmark that includes the entire estate, house and carriage house. There are group tours, special events, educational programs for kids and trail hikes.
