A ONE-OF-A-KIND DESTINATION, DIRECTLY ON THE HUDSON RIVER
In 1865 William Hutton and John Cordts purchased land along the Hudson River. The Hutton Brickyards quickly became a major manufacturer of quality brick, operating continually for more than 100 years (1865 to 1980). Cordts retired in 1887, and Hutton continued on as the president and sole owner until his death in 1897. Although the business prospered through the Industrial Revolution, WWI and WWII, the Hutton family decided to leave the brick industry in the 1960s.
Much of the iconic facilities’ infrastructure has since been dismantled, but a few integral elements remain—including the three steel-frame kiln sheds which were moved to the site from another location in the 1940’s.
These kiln sheds are some of the only surviving examples of brick making architecture in the Hudson Valley region, and serve as an iconic reminder of our manufacturing past.
MWest Holdings is committed to preserving and restoring the last remaining salvageable structures on the site. These structures serve as an indispensable piece of our collective history, and a testimony to the integrity of those who literally build New York City. We are committed to reimagining this formerly blighted industrial site into a majestic park-like gathering space for weddings, concerts, corporate events, and festivals of all sizes.
