27. Kykuit

Kykuit estate

Kykuit, meaning lookout in Dutch, was home to four generations of the Rockefeller Family. It was designed by Delano & Aldrich in 1913 for John D. Rockefeller. The estate has something for everyone, beautifully landscaped grounds and gardens, outstanding interior rooms, and a modern art collection worthy of a museum (including works by Picasso, Chagall and Warhol, Brancusi, Calder, Noguchi, and more). Historic Hudson Valley, which operates Kykuit as well as other Hudson Valley sites runs a number of different tours of the estate and grounds.
