Let’s Reopen the Bridge!

Calvert Vaux Preservation Alliance

needs your help to repair the

Hoyt Carriageway Bridge!


Just inside the entry gates on Old Albany Post Road in Staatsburg, the Hoyt Carriageway Bridge carries the historic carriageway that leads to The Point over the railroad tracks. Designed by Calvert Vaux for Lydig and Geraldine Livingston Hoyt in 1855, the site holds as its hidden treasure an iconic experience of American Picturesque architecture and landscape design.

After 100 years in service, the bridge was closed to hikers in 2015. To return it to service, CVPA must complete an engineering study that determines the extent of repairs needed and then complete those repairs. We have received a Hudson River Valley Greenway grant to help support this important step. Now, we need your help to raise the needed $18,000 match.

Reopening the Bridge will help CVPA share The Point’s important story – as well as the urgency and redevelopment potential in saving the site and creating uses for it that benefit the regional economy.

          Let’s restore the Hoyt Carriageway Bridge to enhance our enjoyment of Mills Norrie State Park and provide visitors access to The Point from the Old Post Road through the Staatsburg entry gates as Vaux intended!


Thank you again for your interest in Calvert Vaux and The Point!

With your support, we look forward to

continued momentum in 2022!
