Calvert Vaux Preservation Alliance

Preserving the design legacy of Calvert Vaux

Mission Statement

The Calvert Vaux Preservation Alliance (CVPA) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit advocacy organization dedicated to preserving the architectural and landscape design legacy of Calvert Vaux, senior co-designer of Manhattan’s Central Park and Prospect Park in Brooklyn (and many other parks), and the architect of many residences in the Hudson Valley, notably in Newburgh and Kingston.

Restoration of the Hoyt House (“The Point”) in Staatsburg, NY, is a major focus of CVPA’s work. The Hoyt House is considered Vaux’s most important application of the picturesque concept in its integration of landscape and architectural design.
