Oheka Castle Sweet Sixteen
Yes, a sweet sixteen, the most lavish party from the room design and decor and those flowers!
Almost a century ago, financier and philanthropist Otto Hermann Kahn built OHEKA CASTLE in the middle of a 443 acre plot on the highest point on Long Island in Cold Spring Harbor, for an estimated cost of $11 million dollars ($110 million dollars in today’s currency). At the time of its construction, the French-style chateau was, and still is today, the second-largest private residence ever built in America. During the Gilded Age of the 1920’s, Kahn used the 109,000 square foot, 127 room estate as a summer home where he hosted lavish parties and regularly entertained royalty, heads of state, and Hollywood stars.
Today, OHEKA is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is admired as a premier venue to host society weddings, gala celebrations, and corporate retreats. OHEKA is also an historic hotel with 32 luxury guestrooms and suites on the upper floors of the estate and has been the backdrop to many famous music, television, film and photo productions since the making of the classic film, “Citizen Kane”, to the present day TV series, “Royal Pains”. Mansion Tours of the estate and gardens offer guests the unique opportunity to learn about OHEKA’s rich history and experience the grandeur of this magnificent estate.
