Mixing a bit of history into any trip is a good thing. Whether your a family with children or a couple visiting the Woodstock area this is a must see Historical Park. The fascinating and productive lives of Messrs Marsh, Billings and Rockefeller were unique and different in many ways but they had two things in common. First, they were... More

We came to tour the Marsh Billings Rockefeller Mansion and were taken by the beauty of the home and grounds. What did not sit well was the Park Service Tour Guide who went over board in giving a dissertation that bordered on a Global Climate Change - Environmentalist indoctrination. While I favor good stewardship of the environment this was a... More

The National Park Service tours of the Marsh/Billings/Rockefeller Home are phenomenal. The dialogue about stewardship of our national resources is outstanding and a must.

Stopped here because it was the museum's open house, therefore free. The grounds were beautiful, probably more interesting than the house. The park rangers were very helpful and answered all of our questions in great detail. However, I wasn't that impressed by the grandeur of the house. I am a history buff but I wasn't that interested in this stop.... More

The park is beautiful. The Overlooks amazing. The trail map is quite confusing. Many trails not on the map and trails intersect with the same name

We toured the house and grounds, but much of the house cannot be seen unless one takes two other tours. It is an interesting look at how a weallthy couple lived in the late 20th century. Worth doing.

We toured the mansion with an awesome Park Ranger...not to be missed. Walked up the beautiful path to the pond, a great treat!

We visited the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park when we were in Woodstock for a wedding and had some time to kill. We walked on the carriage roads and the scenery is bucolic and interesting. The tour of the mansion was amazing. Because the house isn't set up as a museum, the tour is limited to 10-12 people, so you not... More

This park offers the perfect get-away to enjoy a "model forest developed by Frederick Billings." The park focuses on conservations, working landscapes and agricultural countryside. The Carriage Barn Visitor Center offers tours of the forest, mansion and gardens which are beautiful and truly worthwhile. Plan to spend the day just at this venue to enjoy the walks, tours and museum.
