LMMM Trustee LeGrand Redfield
LeGrand S. Redfield, Jr., a descendant of LeGrand Lockwood, is joining the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion’s Board of Trustees. Redfield has been involved in the financial industry for the past thirty years, assisting clients in the development and implementation of financial strategies.

Redfield has been a member of the Million Dollar Round Table for eighteen years and most recently, achieved the highest level of membership as a member of the Top of the Table. He also served as a member of the Board of Directors of the Financial Planning Association of Connecticut-Fairfield County. His responsibilities included leading the Practice Management and Technology Committee.

Redfield has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Investment News, US News and World Report, Reuters, and Financial Advisor Magazine. He was recently recognized by Worth Magazine as one of the top 250 Wealth Advisors in the U.S.

“We are thrilled that LeGrand S. Redfield, great-great-grandson of LeGrand Lockwood, is joining the Museum’s Board of Trustees,” said LMMM Executive Director Sheldon R. Gerarden. “Redfield’s significant experience in the financial industry and commitment to the arts and culture will greatly help enhance this national treasure.”

Raised in New York City and Greenwich, CT, Redfield received a bachelor's degree from Lake Forest College and attained both the Chartered Life Underwriter and the Chartered Financial Consultant designations from the American College. In 1983, he founded Asset Management Group, Inc., a company that provides independent comprehensive financial planning. He currently lives with his wife Helen in Norwalk, CT.

Built by LeGrand Lockwood, a railroad tycoon and rival of the Vanderbilt dynasty, the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion is one of the finest examples of Second Empire style architecture in the United States.

It pre-dates the Newport, R.I. “cottages” such as The Breakers, Chateau Sur Mer, Rosecliff, and Marble House by nearly 30 years. Completed in 1868, this 62-room granite summer house designed by Detlef Lienau contains magnificent inlaid and carved and painted interiors.

Full tours at the mansion are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and $6 for children and young adults aged 8 to 18. Children under 8 are admitted for free. Tour hours are: 12:00 to 4:00 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. Tours are on the hour and the last tour is at 3:00 pm.
