Cedarmere was the home of William Cullen Bryant, a poet and publisher of the New York Evening Post.  He converted an older 18th Century farmhouse in Roslyn Harbor, Long Island into his home around 1787.  Frederick Law Olmsted did the landscaping.  Today the house is owned by Nassau County and run as a museum and preserve.  Click HERE to see Cedarmere on google earth.

This must have been some sort of mill in its time.  There is old machinery attached to the side, rusted beyond recognition.

The view from the lawn, with the gardens in the foreground and Hempstead Harbor in the background.
