Details

The bottom portion of this stone and brick house was built in the late 1600s by Stephanus Van Cortlandt, who amassed the surrounding land. In 1749, his grandson, Pierre, turned the simple hunting lodge into an elegant residence, adding the upper stories and porches. The house remained in the Van Cortlandt family until 1945 and was purchased in 1953 by John D. Rockefeller Jr. to assure its preservation.
