This Japanese garden is at the country home of John D. Rockefeller (1839-1937) which was built just north of Tarrytown in an area known as Pocantico (the word the Rockefellers used when referring to the garden in their correspondence). Called Kykuit (Dutch for ‘lookout’, the name given to the hill by early settlers), the house was designed by the leading country-house architects of the day William Adams Delano (1874-1960) and Charles Holmes Aldrich (1871- 1940) and the landscape was planned by William Welles Bosworth (1869-1960). The Japanese garden was created in 1908 as part of the early landscaping surrounding Kykuit.
