This historic area and its surroundings were developed and presented to the people of the City of New York in 1935 by John. D. Rockefeller, Jr. The adjacent hilltop, and outpost of Fort Washington, was gallantly defended in November 1776 by the Maryland and Virginia Regiment. After its capture, it was named Fort Tryon in honor of the last English civil governor of New York.
