|A designated historic district, Tuxedo Park retains a number of significant residences, some of which date from 1886, and exemplify
nearly every important style of American domestic architecture.
Bruce Price, a famous turn of the century architect, under the direction of Pierre Lorillard, and with a crew of 1800 immigrant laborers,
in eight months yielded 30 miles of roads bordered by possibly some of the most spectacularly beautiful stone walls to be seen today.
Lorillard encouraged Price to exploit the rough materials found in the area and to subordinate the design of the residences
in the natural beauty of the environment.
The most popular styles of contemporary architecture were built in Tuxedo Park in the 1890’s. Structures in the Tudor Revival, Spanish Mission,
Georgian, Jacobean, Gothic Revival, Queen Anne and Dutch Colonial Revival are all represented.

|In 1885-86, Pierre Lorillard IV
created his breathtakingly
beautiful sportsman’s preserve
out of a mountain wilderness.
It is an enclave of mansions
and beautifully designed
homes by the best-known
architects of the day, clustered
around three sparkling lakes
beneath the lovely Ramapo
Mountains. All this, and less
than an hour’s drive from
New York City.
“A place where a man who has to work in New York City may live year round, where there is the highest altitude for the least number of miles
from town, a place where little children may be allowed to run at large in safety. In other words, as a beautiful place of permanent homes,
Tuxedo Park is as ideal as can be found”
