Over the course of their lifetimes, the Schuylers enslaved more than 60 people of African ancestry. On this tour, visitors will gain insight into the lives of some of these individuals, including Silva, who was likely the cook and a fortuneteller, and Claas, a cart driver who escaped bondage by joining the British during the Revolutionary War. Their stories and many others will be explored through primary-source documents and interactive activities. Each tour is 60 to 80 minutes long. 

The tour is available by reservation and is held at 2PM on Thursdays and Saturdays in February. Admission is $7 for adults, $6 for seniors and students. Children 12 and under are free. You can make a reservation for the tour by calling Schuyler Mansion at 518-434-0834.
