History of Rockwood Hall

Saturday, October 16, 2021 11:00 AM - 01:00 PM

Join our historian, David Teich, on an adventure into the past as we explore Rockwood Hall and its rich history through stories of the land and the people who called it home. Once the estate of William Rockefeller, this site boasts scenic views overlooking the Hudson, lush forests, and remnants of 19th century luxuries. Gather at the Rockwood Hall parking lot on Kendal Way at the end of route 117, just after the intersection of Phelps and Regeneron. Leashed dogs are welcome. Bring water to drink. In the event of heavy rain, the tour will be canceled and a full refund will be issued. You will be notified via email at least 2 hours in advance. Cost: $3 + Eventbrite fees. Maximum: 40 people. PLEASE NOTE: THIS HIKE IS AT ROCKWOOD HALL, DO NOT GO TO THE MAIN PARK ENTRANCE!
