Walden Riverside Farm

Our History

Four Generations of Phelps

Known formerly as the Dubois-Phelps House, the original farmhouse dates back to the late 1700’s, being built in Walden, New York, in the Hudson Valley.

In 1851, it was purchased and renovated to its current iconic Greek Revival style by Nathaniel Dubois.

In 1922, the property was purchased by Sam Phelps where it has remained in the family for four generations.

in 1997, the Phelps House was added to the National Register of Historic Places, a sub-division of the National Park Service.

It is currently owned by Sam Phelps’ great-grandson, Sam Phelps IV, alongside his wife Melissa and two daughters. The property just celebrated its 100th Anniversary as the Phelps Riverside Farm.

Today, the property also serves as an event venue used to host iconic barn weddings, ceremonies, parties, corporate retreats, and more.
