Front Facade
Begun in 1876 and completed in 1877 and overlooking the Hudson River and Palisades, six period rooms of the Mansion have been restored to reflect the lifestyle of its turn-of-the-century residents, the John Bond Trevor family.

Sitting Room
The interior design follows the Eastlake style, which incorporates abstracted designs inspired by nature, such as the carved and inlaid sunflower details of the woodwork. Glenview is considered one of the finest examples of an American Eastlake interior open to the public. Delicately incised birds eye maple cabinetry is a notable feature of the Sitting Room.

Parlor
The Parlor was designed as a whole ensemble: wallpaper; ceiling stencils; textiles and furnishings created a rich layering of pattern, color and texture. Highlights of this room include: Meissen china figure groups and an Italian marble sculpture of Faust and Marguerite.
