Historic Cherry Hill tells a story of America through the lives and experiences of five generations of an Albany, New York, household. One of Albany's most recognizable landmarks, Cherry Hill was built in 1787 for Philip and Maria Van Rensselaer and continuously lived in until 1963 by extended family, enslaved people, descendants, and servants—who left artifacts, documents, and stories behind.
