Historic Cherry Hill, an 18th-century mansion on South Peal Street in Albany, is in need of repair, and with enough interest, it can be restored!
The timber-framed structured home was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and was one of the first properties in the city to receive that designation. Since the yellow Georgian mansion dates back to the 18th century, it is in need of a great deal of improvements and fund raising to make progress toward their benchmark goal.
Two supporters of this property have already made two pledges to save Historic Cherry Hill by donating $55,000 combined. These generous gifts are bringing the historic site closer to its goal of $125,000.
The money raised would be used to restore the famous mansion and help them get back to their regular hours and programming.
The Albany landmark, former home of the Van Rensselaer and Rankin families, is in need of extensive restoration that includes structural repairs, window restoration and environmental improvements. Advocates are hoping to gain this money so they can continue to allow the public to enjoy this landmark!
