Kykuit, 200 Lake Road, Pocantico Hills, Westchester County, NY
Significance: Kykuit captures our attention because of the man who lived there. John D. Rockefeller, Sr., lived through twenty-five American presidents; his entrepreneurship changed American business and industry; and his equally important philanthropy built hospitals, clinics, schools, colleges, universities, and models of modern agriculture. Fortunately, Rockefeller's purchases at Pocantico Hills preserved and protected the area as private open space that, now, will be enjoyed by the public.
