Copland House at Merestead is located at 455 Byram Lake Road, Mt. Kisco, NY 10549 in Westchester County. Merestead (farmland in Scottish) was designed and built in 1906–07 by famed architects Delano & Aldrich as the country home of William Sloane, President of the W & J Sloane Furniture Company, and his family.

From Copland House: "Sloane’s son-in-law and daughter, Dr. and Mrs. Robert L. Patterson, Jr., gave this majestic property to the people of Westchester. A County Park, the 130-acre estate includes a 26-room Georgian Revival mansion, carriage house, farm buildings, formal gardens, natural woodlands, rolling hills and meadows, and over two miles of trails.

"In September 2009, an innovative public-private partnership between Westchester County and Copland House was launched to realize the Pattersons’ sweeping vision, and establish a unique creative center at Merestead, which will serve as an extension of Copland House’s acclaimed musical, educational, and public programs. This extraordinary collaboration preserves a large parcel of open land, revives one of Westchester’s last great country estates, and creates a singular institution that champions American music and the arts—and makes all of this accessible to the public.

"Merestead’s rebirth also places Westchester in the forefront of the important national movement that sensitively 're-purposes' magnificent older structures to give them a thriving, energetic new life. Copland House’s initial two concert seasons in 2009–10 and 2010–11 attracted capacity audiences, and brought to Westchester such musical luminaries as composers John Corigliano, Richard Danielpour, David Amram, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Godspell), and Steve Reich, country-fiddler and composer Mark O’Connor, author and New Yorker music critic Alex Ross, PBS-TV’s Live from Lincoln Center host Fred Child, and others.

"Copland House at Merestead will ultimately host year-round collaborative residences for composers working on larger, multi-media projects; various musical events; educational activities; and other presentations."
