Built between 1906 and 1913, Kykuit was home to four generations of the Rockefeller family. The estate’s modern and classical art collection, architecture, and expansive gardens make it one of the top-rated cultural attractions in New York State. Visitors learn the story of the Rockefellers, beginning with John D. Rockefeller, founder of Standard Oil, whose business acumen made him the richest man in America in his day. He later became the country’s first significant philanthropist and by his death in 1937, he had given away more than half his fortune through various philanthropic programs.
