Historic postcard showing Rockwood Hall, house of William Rockefeller, in North Tarrytown, New York.

Join park Historian, David Teich, on an adventure into the past as he explores Rockwood Hall and its rich history through stories of the land and the people who called it home. Former estate of William Rockefeller, this site boasts scenic views overlooking the Hudson, lush forests, and remnants of 19th century luxuries.

Leashed dogs are welcome. Bring water to drink and wear comfortable shoes; the tour is about 3 miles round trip.
