I heard about a Rockefeller house in Ormond Beach years ago and never made a visit until yesterday. What a great find! Our tour guide loves her job & had plenty of interesting facts to pass along. Always nice to go somewhere and learn some history. Worth a visit. Keep history alive.

This is an interesting place to stop to learn about Rockefeller and learn about his life and where he lived later in his life. Our tour was rushed a bit because the tour guide talked a little too much in the beginning so we had to run through the second floor because she had to be done at a certain... More

For several years we have been talking about visiting this site, but something always prevented us going. When we finally made it both my husband and I enjoyed it very much. The house is smaller than I expected since it was owned by a Rockefeller. Its very well preserved. There are not set times for tours which made it a... More

We arrived at this attractions 5 minutes after the last tour started and instead of allowing us to go ahead and catch up with the group we were turned away. We were able to look in the lobby and the ground though, would really have loved to tour the house but we weren't even given the opportunity....shame on the lady... More

We learned a lot ot The Casements, and I enjoyed learning about the Cleveland connection, as I am a native Clevelander.

The Casements was a spur of the moment stop. We enjoyed the free tour of the house and learning about the house's history and about Ormond Beach's car racing history. Unfortunately, most of the rooms are used for other purposes, but we did get to see a few rooms that were used by Rockefeller.

This is well worth a stop. Lots of history here. This was John D Rockefeller's Winter home. You'll hear how the family didn't want the house after Mr. Rockefeller died and how it was transformed into a school for girls and after the school closed the house was home to vagrants that nearly burnt it down. It has been restored... More

This was a nice find on our trip to Florida. The tour is run by volunteers, so each visit will be different. They give a great insight to John D. Rockefeller and his winter home.

Very well done tour with lots of information about a very amazing man. Unbelievable that it is still standing after seeing the photos of how it had deteriorated in the 1970s. So glad it was saved! Definitely worth the time to take the tour. Then sit on the benches in the front park and forget all your troubles as you... More

Enjoyed seeing this & the info provided by video & our excellent docent. Surprised that admission was free, but we did see a place to make a donation & gladly did so.
