Historic Cherry Hill

Historic Cherry Hill tells a story of America through the lives and experiences of five generations of an Albany, New York, household. One of the Capital Region's most recognizable landmarks, the "Yellow House on the Hill" was built in 1787 for Philip and Maria Van Rensselaer and lived in for almost two centuries by extended family, enslaved people, descendants, and servants—who left artifacts, documents, and stories behind.
