The Hudson Valley has long been revered for its magnificent landscapes, farm-fresh cuisine, and renowned vineyards. Because of its historic nature, Hudson Valley is also known for some of the nation’s finest antique hunting. Originally settled as a port town, wealthy merchants began building and furnishing impressive homes in the area. Centuries later, this rich history has made for excellent antique pickings. Scattered throughout the valley, and in near proximity to our Silo Ridge community, are hundreds of antique shops. Each offers its own stunningly eclectic and unique selection. Here are some of our favorites!
The Hyde Park Antiques Center
4192 Albany Post Road, Hyde Park
The Hyde Park Antiques Center primarily operates as a furniture store and an antique showcase. Here, antique dealers, locals, and tourists alike flock to find and sell unique antiques. The center of the building was once a stage stop and later, a Secret Service headquarters for the 32nd President of the United States. Now the Hyde Park Antiques Center is a showcase of collectibles, antiques, and valuables that many vendors and consignors have brought back into the market. Visiting provides an almost “museum-like experience”, where you get to view and claim your own personal piece of history.
92 Partition Street, Saugerties
With multiple storefront locations, and an online store, MOD Catskills has a large selection of authentic 20th-century modern furniture.
