Join the Rowayton Gardeners on our first field trip of the season to see KYKUIT, the landmark National Trust, classical revival home of 4 generations of the Rockefeller family. Built in 1913, the home was aptly named “Kykuit” (which means “lookout” in Dutch). Our docent-led tour on Thursday, September 28th, will emphasize the extensive, terraced gardens with classical and contemporary sculpture and views of the Hudson in early fall glory. We will also see the lower floor of the home.
