This is an aerial view of the Kentlands in the early 1960's. Mr. Kent was an early advocate of wildlife preservation, a fact reflected in the alterations to the landscape. He added lakes, ponds and habitats throughout the farm for birds and game. He also bequeathed land to the National Geographic Society to develop a wildlife sanctuary.

At Kent's death in 1972, Kentland was bequeathed to his adopted daughter, Helene Danger Kent. In May of 1988 Helene sold Kentland to the Great Seneca Limited Partnership.
