The Squirrels is a historic estate located at Highland Falls in Orange County, New York. It was built about 1845 and is a two-story frame and clapboard structure with a multi-gabled roof. A two-story frame wing was added to the original farmhouse about 1856 and the house redesigned by noted architect Calvert Vaux. Also on the property is a one-story gatehouse with a mansard roof. The estate was owned and the house expanded by John Bigelow (1817–1911).[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]
