Enjoy an illustrated journey into the great summer resort homes that made the Hamptons, often referred to as the “American Riviera,” one of the premier resorts of glamour, luxury, and architectural achievement. Some of the houses to be discussed are Wooldon Manor, the home of Jesse Woolworth Donahue; Black Point, the H. H. Rogers mansion; Bayberry Land, the du Ponts’ Chestertown House; Villa Mille Fiore; Red Maples; and The Orchard, one of architect Stanford White’s last great commissions. Renowned architect and historian Gary Lawrance’s talk will also give a brief history of the founding of the Summer Colony. Copies of Mr. Lawrance’s book will be available for sale and signing following the lecture.
