Van Horn Mansion

Revitalization Project

The Van Horn Mansion is a living history museum and event center, first built as a home by the Van Horn Family in 1823. It’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is a cultural and historical centerpiece for the Town of Newfane, NY. 

In honor of the estate’s 200th birthday, the estate will undergo a variety of necessary enhancements in order to refresh the property and help keep it a mainstay attraction of the Newfane community.
