One of the nicest NP in the area. It is beautiful at all seasons. Great history and the grounds are quiet.

Attended a group walk here. Very good staff. Wonderful activities for the kids. Good trails to walk. Nice nature walk. Can't wait to return in the fall and see the beautiful autumn colors.

The park ranger was very informative! I hadn't know much about this time period & Mr Gallidin. Quite the interesting life & house! Glad I went!

We ended up at Friendship Hill on the advice of our tour guide at Searight's Toll House and were so glad we stopped in. Since it was the July 4th holiday, it wasn't crowded at all, just a handful of people. We toured the house...More

Went here with my wife, 3 young children, and my parents. The location itself is pretty far off the beaten path, but that adds to the appeal. The grounds leading into Gallatin's Friendship Hill homestead are lined with trees and rolling green spaces. Closer to...More

The house is a self guided tour and you can not go up the stairs to the highest level or go on the porches. It was a nice house and very lovely. The walking trails that lead away from the house are beautiful, but unless...More

It pains me to give this place three stars. The man who built the house initially was as important to the young nation as any of the founding fathers. The National Park rangers were incredibly informed, helpful, and ready to educate. However, the house itself...More

Unless you're quite the history buff, you might not think too much of the house itself. Much seems original but there are better national parks to immerse you in the style of the period (e.g. anything owned by Jefferson). But I'd still go here for...More

Lin-Manuel Miranda, in writing his hit play "Hamilton," did not include Albert Gallatin, one of my favorite early American statesmen. Gallatin immigrated to the United States from Geneva, Switzerland when he was 19 years old. The way to riches in early times was not in...More
