Indian Neck Hall, Oakdale NY

Indian Neck Hall was built for “Commodore” Frederick Gilbert Bourne.  Commodore Bourne hired architect Ernest Flagg to create this country estate and the Olmstead Brothers to design the landscape of more than 1000 acres. Built between 1897–1900 and then again between 1907–1908, the Federal Revival style mansion had 110 rooms when it was completed.  In the past, it was also known as the La Salle Military Academy, today it is the Oakdale Campus of Saint John’s University.
