Home to four generations of the Rockefeller family, Kykuit, a Site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, is located in Tarrytown, New York just a short distance from New York City.
A preeminent Hudson Valley landmark, the estate showcases remarkable gardens, architecture, art and history. Completed in 1913 by architects Delano and Aldrich, the hilltop mansion was built for philanthropist John D. Rockefeller, founder of Standard Oil, in his day the richest man in America.
The landmark has been meticulously maintained for over a century. Visitors today can glimpse into the lives of Rockefeller family members and their contributions to philanthropy, conservation, business, government, and the arts, seeing interiors designed by Ogden Codman, collections of Chinese and European ceramics, fine furnishings, and galleries of 20th-century art.
