Tuxedo Park

The village of Tuxedo Park was developed first by Pierre Lorillard IV in 1885 as a private hunting and fishing reserve. It began with small cottages which he rented or sold to friends and family. He organized the Tuxedo Club and Tuxedo Park Association as the popularity of the project grew. He surrounded the property with a high fence used to restrict use to its residents. It attracted many  socialites and wealthy people, including J.P. Morgan and William Waldorf Astor. Emily Post, daughter of architect Bruce Price, based “The Blue Book of Etiquette” upon her observations of life there. Tuxedo Park was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980, due to its historical and architectural significance.
