Notes:
The Eagle's Nest was an overlook, constructed of rock, with a view over the property of the Hudson. An elaborate rock garden was also constructed around the tall overlook. In early years, it may have once contained a small greek temple; in later years, a cast stone and ironwork pergolas structure later appeared in this location, and remains there today.
