What’s The Point?

The pivotal creation of vastly under-recognized architect and landscape designer Calvert Vaux, The Point in Staatsburg, NY offers the opportunity to create a place where Vaux’s work can be interpreted and experienced. Vaux played an important role in the development of the American Picturesque movement, New York City’s Central Park and Brooklyn’s Prospect Park. He was a leading advocate in the evolution of the American country estate and the design of city parks and suburbs across the United States.

CVPA is seizing the important opportunity to redevelop The Point to serve the Mid Hudson economy. Interpreting Vaux at the Point will draw visitors to Mills Norrie Park and help build appreciation for the many exciting Vaux resources throughout the region. Restoration of The Point’s historic mansion, landscape and barn complex will facilitate commercial uses that generate revenues to make the site sustainable and help create local jobs.

We hope you’ll join the community we are building. We need your help to make restoration and sustainable reuse of The Point a reality!
