This panel exhibit, hosted in the Visitors' Center, will explore the life of Clermont's Gilded-Age daughter, Katharine Livingston Timpson, and her complex relationship with her home and family. Katharine was John Henry Livingston's only daughter from his first wife. During her youth, Katharine and her father traveled the world, bringing countless treasures back to Clermont. Katharine briefly owned the mansion when she inherited it from her grandfather; money from her mother's family paid for many of the grand improvements of the late 1800s.

Come and spend a November afternoon like the Victorians did! Join us for a walk of the grounds here at Clermont to learn how to identify black walnut and shagbark trees, then come back to the Cottage to sip hot cocoa and learn how to process nuts for eating. We'll then make a sweet treat for all of us to enjoy. (Note: all nuts used in this process will be purchased off premises).​

We welcome children age 8 and older and an adult companion for only $10; an additional child costs $5 extra. Register online or call us at (518) 537-6622.
