Marlborough

Marlborough, the county’s southernmost Hudson River town, is a historic farming community. It includes farms of all sizes growing a wide variety of goods.  The town is also home to several award-winning farm wineries, each offering its own unique experience, including the oldest continually-operated vineyard in America. To the west, rugged hills with their pristine aquifers fall eastward to form the fertile Lattintown Valley abundant with fruit and vegetable farms as well as farm stands and pick-your-own places.

On Saturdays (early summer thru fall) the Heart of the Hudson Valley Farmers Market at Cluett Schantz Memorial Park in Milton brings the bounty from the field to the table. While in Milton, drive to the center of the hamlet to find historic buildings, shopping and the beautiful Buttermilk Falls Inn & Spa. The newly-refurbished Milton Riverfront Park (which includes a restored 1885 train station and marina) and the Sarah Hull Hallock Library are great places to stop to learn more about the history of the area.

Other must-sees include Gomez Mill House, the oldest Jewish dwelling in North America, Racoon Saloon, located in a building dating to the mid-1800s and The Falcon, a music venue attracting world-class performances and overlooking Marlboro Falls. Whether its art and entertainment, culinary delights, health and fitness, or rest and relaxation, you’ll find it in Marlborough.
