A Day in Kykuit

Here are pictures from our wonderful day in Kykuit. One of America’s most famous private residences, the stone mansion was constructed by the architects Chester Holmes Aldrich and William Adams Delano (Aldrich was a distant relative of Junior’s wife,Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, who was involved as artistic consultant and in the interior design of the mansion). Senior had originally purchased land in the area as early as 1893, inspired by his brother William’s ostentatious 204-room mansion (Rockwood Hall), which had already been built in the spectacular natural setting of the area. I went with Micah and Zack and it was a wonderful adventure!
