Fodor's Review

Built in 1912 for Reverend Harwood Huntington and named for its handcrafted casement windows, the home was purchased by John D. Rockefeller Sr. in 1918 as a winter retreat. Once considered the richest man in the world, Rockefeller entertained famous friends such as Henry Ford, Will Rogers, and Henry Flagler at the home while remaining an active member of the Ormond Beach community. After Rockefeller's death in 1937, the property was bought and sold numerous times and is now a cultural center and museum. The waterfront estate and its formal gardens host daily tours and an annual lineup of events and exhibits; there's also a permanent exhibit of Hungarian folk art and Boy Scout memorabilia.
