  1. Just a very wonderful place. The brick work and masonry alone is astounding! The boat house where the yachts were stored is simply fascinating. Our guide said their were underground tunnels used by boot leggers during prohibition. This is a must see estate for Gothic lovers.

  5. My name is John Munna. I was a student at Coindre Hall from the 3rd to the 8th grade, graduating in 1947. I then enrolled at Chaminade High School, Mineola, L.I.N.Y.
    I am a surgeon, served with the Marines in Vietnam, 1968-1969. My older brother also attended Coindre Hall. He served as a career officer in the US Air Force. I would like to contact management to see if they would like an oral history of those years. I am 79 years old, and my brother, 82..

      Hey John, I was a student at Coindre Hall 1947-1950 Was on the football team (Seagulls)-1949 remember Brother Peire or Prefect brother Harold? My fourth grade teacher was Brother Arnold. I am now 75 years old and retired NYCTA Instructor. Is it possible that more of our school buddies could meet once again at the school? Remember Frisky the German Shepard? US. Navy-R 1957 1963

      • Hi Frank Yes I remember Brother Arnold since the 4th grade around 1052. He always had a great smile. I was the second smallest kid in the school BUT he always encouraged me in sports. At the small house near the pond we would have contests to climb a rope to the top. He was like a second father. I was there from 1952 to 1956
