We enjoyed our wonderful tour of this beautiful mansion! There is so much to see and would not have been possible without the assistance of a well-informed tour guide!

Very interesting and informative about the life of John D. Rockefeller in Ormond Beach. Great old photos on display and wonderful archives. Take the short tour of Rockefeller's Florida home. The Casements also hosts art exhibits and other cultural events.

Hi, the mansion has hours until 5:00 Mon-Fri, Sat until noon and is closed on Sunday. I think you can walk around the grounds until dusk. They charge for tours, events, classes, etc. It's free to walk around the grounds... More
