The Old Entrance to the Whitney Estate
Down the same long forgotten road as the entrance to Stanley Mortimer's 'Roslyn House' sits the original entrance to William C. Whitney's estate and mansion, 'The Manse'. The Whitneys would have stopped using this driveway when they sold the main house to the Old Westbury Country Club. Access to the main house is now off of Wheatley Road. This road was originally known as Stow-Mortimer-Whitney road and after H.C. Phipps purchased the Stow property and Garvan the Mortimer property, it became Whitney-Phipps-Garvan road.
