Khakum Wood is an exclusive neighborhood off Round Hill Road in the city of Greenwich, in Fairfield County, Connecticut. Khakum Wood was built as an expensive residential enclave in the 1920s and 1930s and has evolved into an exclusive neighborhood association. Famed Central Park landscape designers, the Olmsted Brothers Landscape Design, and architect I. N. Phelps Stokes deserve much of the credit for the aesthetically beautiful Khakum Wood. Between 1908 and 1910 Stokes designed and constructed a stone castle on a portion of the 177 acres he had purchased in 1900 from W.A.Hustead, in an area that would become Khakum Wood.
