Rockefeller's Winter Home
Oct 2021
John D. Rockefeller's winter home. And, where he died in May 1937. We didn't have the opportunity to visit inside. The home and grounds are gorgeous and full of history. WE did walk the gardens and enjoyed every minute of it. The beauty can be breathtaking.

History
Mar 2021
A little bit of history among a peaceful garden. I visited the Daytona Beach area for years before taking time to visit the Casements. It is well worth an hour of your time.

Can’t beat free.
Aug 2021
We did a visit today (August 28, 2021). Weirdly they were closing at 12 noon and we did not get in the house until 11:20 am. Needless to say, you can easily spend over an hour in the house. Plenty of historic pictures and stories relative to Mr. Rockefeller. A must stop if in the Ormond beach area!

If there is a guided tour we were unaware of it but nevertheless we enjoyed the visit at our own pace although it was rushed since we only had 40 minutes.

an enjoyable stop while at ormond beach
Aug 2021
the casements is not giving tours at this time, but when you enter, you can download the app which gives you a voiced narrated tour with numbered stops through out the house. the info about john rockefeller and car racing at ormond beach is interesting along with the fact that he chose to live out his last days at ormond beach. there is plenty of free parking.

a nice quick stop
Jun 2021
wouldn't go out of my way to visit but definitely something fun if you are just having a lazy day in the area. took a guided tour that was interesting. house has a story that is appealing to people over 45 but most younger do not know who Rockefeller is so it would just be a house tour. the place is attractive and has nice grounds, but to see everything requires only a 1 hour visit so it's not a major attraction. we live in the area and will be coming back in December to see their Christmas display.

Beautifully Restored
Mar 2021
The Casement House at one time was owned by John D. Rockefeller who loved golf and car racing. It is located in Ormond Beach across from the Hotel Ormond. It’s rich history of famous visitors including Thomas Edison and Henry Ford is well documented throughout the displays. After his death the house was sold and used in several ways before being abandoned and allowed to deteriorate. It was restored using federal grant money but unfortunately many of the casement windows for which it was named are no longer part of the house. There are no guided tours at this time but you can use a cell phone ap available that will give you an audio tour detailing the history and restoration. It is free to tour the house and grounds and there is plenty of free parking. 90 minutes will be plenty of time to complete the tour.

Historic Home of "Neighbor John" D Rockefeller
Apr 2021
We did the self-guided tour. The lady at the entry was very helpful in getting this info on my phone. I am glad this place was restored from the wreck it had become. I enjoyed the historic photos.

I was disappointed in "The Gardens" part, which really is just the public park across the street. It is a lovely park and exercise area for locals, but I was expecting more formal gardens like you would see at large estates.

Interesting peek into history.

So glad the Ormond Beach Council decided to let this historic home be saved after all it had been through. Nice peek into Rockefeller's life.
