Lorenzo Open for Tours!


Lorenzo State Historic Site is the 1807 Federal style home of John Lincklaen, Holland Land Company agent and founder of Cazenovia.  It was continually occupied by family until the property and contents were conveyed to New York State in 1968. The imprint of Lorenzo’s residents, including the enslaved people, servants, and many employees required to run the estate, can be found at every turn.  Visitors to Lorenzo enjoy guided tours of the Mansion furnished with 160 years of original furnishings. The last tour leaves at 4:00pm.  Explore the Visitor Center for the history of Cazenovia, building of Lorenzo, and an amazing carriage and sleigh display.  Visit the museum shop for a unique selection of Lorenzo merchandise, books, and gift items.  The grounds are open daily, year-round, dawn until dusk to stroll through the Ellen Shipman-designed formal garden and Dark Aisle Arboretum or hike the connective trail through the 87-acre site.
