Planning a trip to Planting Fields today?


Planting Fields, the former estate of insurance magnate William Robertson Coe Standard Oil heiress Mai Rogers Coe and is one of the few remaining Gold Coast estates on Long Island's North Shore that retains its original 409 acres as well as its historic buildings and landscape. Rolling lawns, formal gardens, hiking trails and specimen plantings, as well as the Camellia Greenhouse and the Main Greenhouse, with its unique seasonal displays, are a treat for visitors year round.


Coe Hall contains many original pieces and furnishings once belonging to the Coe family, including the restored Louis XVI Reception Room. The mostly Elizabethan style interior of the Tudor Revival mansion is a showcase of artistry and craftsmanship in its wood and stone carvings, ironwork, 13th - 19th century stained glass windows and original commissioned murals by American artists Robert H. Chanler and Everett Shinn.
