The Casements - John D. Rockefeller Winter Home


Learn a little history while you are in the area, by stopping by The Casements. Located in Ormond Beach, at 25 Riverside Drive, The Casements was the winter home of John D. Rockefeller. Today, it's a beautiful historical place that people can tour, as well as participate in events and classes at.

John D. Rockefeller was known for Standard Oil, which helped make him on of the richest people to ever live.  According to Forbes, he became the world's first billionaire in 1916, when he had $30 billion. His wealth, adjusted for inflation, would be worth $340 billion. That's four times more than the richest person in the world has today.

Not only did Rockefeller spend his winters at The Casements once he purchased the property in 1918, but he also died there in his bedroom in 1937. Some of his house guests over the years included Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and Harvey Firestone. Ormond Beach is also known as the "Birthplace of Speed." With the racing that took place on the beach, Rockefeller also had fast car-driving guests.

You can tour the Rockefeller home, as well as stroll the grounds, which is along the river. There are cultural events held at The Casements each year, including a variety of festivals, cooking classes, and community movies on the lawn. The grounds include a beautiful garden area and pond. 

Ormond Beach is located just minutes north of Daytona Beach, and is part of the Daytona Beach area. If you are visiting Daytona Beach, you can be at The Casements within minutes, strolling the grounds and touring the historical home. This is a great stop for anyone who likes historical places or wants to learn more about the history of the area. It's also a great way to see how the wealthiest person to ever live at the time was spending his winters.

Rockefeller has two main goals in life, as the story goes. He wanted to make at least $100,000, and he wanted to live to be 100 years old.  He far surpassed the first one, and came really close to achieving the second one. His legacy, however, continues to live on. He was a philanthropist, who donated large sums of money to many different causes.
