Gated Community

Great philanthropists Edward Harkness, son of an original Standard Oil partner, and his wife Mary Stillman, of the Rockefeller family, are buried together in this gated fortress reminiscent of a Medieval church. It was designed by James Gamble Rogers, Edward Harness's favorite architect, known for his university structures at Yale, Columbia, and Northwestern.
