Hillsborough, New Jersey
Duke Farms, Doris Duke’s 2,700-acre private estate, opened to the public in 2003 for the first time in 75 years. The former estate of J.B. Duke now comprises one of New Jersey’s largest remaining privately owned open spaces which includes 9 excavated lakes, some 45 buildings, nearly 2 ½ miles of stone walls and more than 18 miles of roadway. The Foundation has implemented the master plan for the preservation and adaptive reuse of Duke Farms. Andropogon provided site analysis, capital improvement strategies and phased project implementation. Andropogon also developed insights into the ecological and experiential aspects of the property for the main loop of the property, including the Farm Barn, Hay Barn, Orchid Range, Great Lawn and Old Foundation.
