Beverwyck Manor is a historic home located at Rensselaer in Rensselaer County, New York. It was built between 1839 and 1842. It is constructed of stucco over brick and consists of a three story, three bay wide central block with the central bay recessed. The central block is flanked by two story, single bay extensions. It has a restrained Neoclassical facade and features a one bay portico with stone steps and four Ionic order stone columns. It was built by William Patterson Van Rensselaer and later became part St. Anthony-on-Hudson Seminary, a Franciscan Seminary.[2] The Seminary closed in 1989.[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[1]
