French Azilum Historic Site

News

Herb Garden Planted!
The Herb Garden at Azilum, relocated last year to the rear of the LaPorte House—a more historically accurate spot, and easier to manage—has been planted with this year’s selection of herbs.
Come visit us, and smell fresh thyme, sage, marjoram, oregano and other herbs that might have been used both medicinally and in culinary efforts at Azilum, and at John LaPorte’s summer home, the gracious LaPorte House.
Take a tour, watch the video, check out the artifacts, and perhaps take a little something home for yourself as a souvenir of your visit: our Gift Shop is now fully stocked for the season, too!
We open this weekend, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 11-4.

Bienvenue!

Opening Day is Almost Here!
Opening Day is almost here, and we have been working very hard at French Azilum to get the site ready for all our visitors this season. Nick Superko, who is taking care of maintaining the Overlook on Route 6, recently did the initial mowing and brush clearing there...in the photo, look in the distance to see Azilum's site! We hope for drier, sunnier weather, though, as much of the work has been done in the mist and the rain...and the cold! Come visit us this summer, and be sure to check out our Events tab on the Home Page. And check back here frequently to see the latest updates and photos from our activities!

Opening Weekend May 24,25,26
Our season Opens May 24th 2019, hours 11-4. Tours of the LaPorte House starting at 12. Many Thanks to our sponsors
