    Park staff will be leading a tour through James Stillman Rockefeller’s winter estate. The tour will begin by discussing the history of the property and how it came to be Long Valley Farm, followed by taking a guided tour inside the Rockefeller House and learning about James Stillman Rockefeller. It will then end with walking around the outside of the estate and discussing some surrounding structures, some dating back to the early 1800's.

    To attend the tour, sign-up is required ahead of time, either by stopping in or calling the park office. Participants are asked to arrive early and allow approximately 15 minutes to walk the half-mile from the parking lot to the Rain Shelter before the tour begins. Program will be cancelled if it rains or if other weather conditions make it unsuitable; if in doubt, call the main office.
