Statement of Significance (as of designation - November 5, 1961):
Philipsburg Manor is a late 17th and early 18th century milling and trading complex that was headquarters for a 52,000 acre estate. It was owned by an Anglo-Dutch family of merchants and operated by a community of enslaved Africans. Philipsburg Manor presents the history of northern colonial slavery and its effects on the commercial, economic, and cultural development of New York.

Historic Hudson Valley, which owns this site, applied for a Save America's Treasures grant in 2003 to be used to restore the manor house.
