The Wainwright House is the oldest non-profit, non-sectarian holistic learning center in the nation. This magnificent 16-room replica of a French Chateau with carriage house sits on five acres of land overlooking Milton Harbor on Long Island Sound in Rye, NY. It was founded in 1951 by Fonrose Wainwright Condict, a Rye resident, with the help of the Reverend Norman Vincent Peale.
Initially, it was home to the Laymen’s Movement, an association of businessmen founded in 1941 to encourage spiritual values in the workplace. Among its members were John D. Rockefeller, J.C. Penney and Dwight D. Eisenhower. Shortly afterwards, it hosted United National conferences on conflict resolution.
Over the years, the Wainwright House has been the site of hundreds of conferences, meetings and classes in a variety of disciplines. Speakers included Joseph Campbell, Deepak Chopra and Dr. Bernie Siegel.
