The Rockwood Hall area is part of the Rockefeller State Park Preserve. It is named after Rockwood Hall, the former estate of William D. Rockefeller, which was built in 1886. The mansion, with over 200 rooms, was described in great detail in a NY Times article in 1895. When William died in 1922, the estate became a country club that went bankrupt. The property passed to his nephew, John D. Rockefeller, Jr, and was razed in 1941. The debris was dumped into the Hudson River near the site of the former dock. New York State acquired the property in 1998. All that is left of the mansion now is the foundation and retaining wall.
