Knickerbocker Mansion is a historic home located at Schaghticoke in Rensselaer County, New York. It was built about 1770 and is a 2 12-story, rectangular brick building. It has a hipped roof, covered in slate, that curves slightly at the eaves. The front facade once featured a one-bay, pedimented entrance portico. The property was occupied by the Knickerbocker[disambiguation needed] family from about 1707 until 1946.[2] It was acquired in 1964 by the Knickerbocker Historical Society and is operated as a local history museum.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.[1]
