With gorgeous stained glass windows designed by artists Henri Matisse and Marc Chagall, visit this country church located in Pocantico Hills, originally built as a tribute to the iconic Rockefeller family.
Step inside this historic stone church built in 1921 by John D. Rockefeller, Jr. in 1921, as part of his plans to develop the town of Pocantico Hills, right near his family estate, Kykuit. Marvel at the colorful rose window designed by Rockefeller's wife, Abby Aldrich Rockefeller's favorite artist, Henri Matisse in memory of her death in 1948. When John D. Rockefeller, Jr. passed away in 1960, their children commissioned artist Marc Chagall to create the Good Samaritan stained glass window in his honor, which brought a dramatic combination of light and color, art, and spirituality to the church.
Gaze at the windows on your own or take a 30-minute tour that runs every half hour. The church was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2006.
