The estate was built for Marshall Field III in the early 1920’s by the architect John Russell Pope.  I was there to visit the beautiful Designer’s Show House (October 2010) in the Winter Cottage (to benefit the Caumsett Foundation) and to enjoy the grounds.

Westbrook, Great River NY

I visited this beautiful Great River, NY estate on May 21, 2009.  The house and grounds are now known as the Bayard Cutting Arboretum.  The house was designed by the architect Charles C. Haight in 1887.  It is Tudor in style.  I have written and posted pictures about this estate extensively on my Long Island South Shore History Wiki Westbrook Page.  I hope you will visit that page, in the mean time, perhaps I can tempt you with just a few pictures here.
