Welcome to Beattie-Powers Place!
Since 2005, the Friends of Beattie-Powers Place has transformed what had become a neglected site into an inviting oasis. Walk, picnic, enjoy the well-tended gardens and winter sledding. Choose a bench and take in the changing seasons, the Hudson River and Rip Van Winkle Bridge. Looking East across the river, enjoy a magnificent view of Olana, home of Hudson River School painter Frederic Church. Open dawn to dusk, the park is open to all, year-round.
We hope to see you soon!
Beattie-Powers Place has received a Regrowth and Capacity grant from the New York State Council on the Arts. This grant will support the organization’s ongoing Concert Series for 2023, as they continue their ongoing recovery from pandemic challenges.
We are go grateful for the strong support from the State of New York. It will give Beattie-Powers a chance to plan our events months in advance. With this opportunity we are planning to produce popular events that will draw large diverse audiences.
Concerts & lectures in a unique setting
Spring through fall, Beattie's intimate parlors have hosted live events for the public. Fans of jazz, chamber music, and bluegrass can enjoy first-rate concerts by renowned artists and brilliant students. Ideas are discussed, too, with talks by experts on topics such as landscape design, preservation and baseball history. With the pandemic, we are currently providing public programming via online and distanced events. Please click here for recordings from recent events on our YouTube channel.
The temperature and trees are beginning to remind us that fall is here. After a trying summer, we are welcoming the change and getting ready to enjoy events again at Beattie-Powers. Thanks to all of our generous donors, we have raised $16,745.00 to date on our GoFundMe campaign. As promised we have spent that money on a new heating system. Below is a list of all our known donors in alphabetical order.
