'Wheatly' was built for Edwin Denison Morgan III by McKim, Mead & White in Old Westbury c. 1890. E.D., as he was known, owned more than 650 acres in the Wheatley Hills part of town. The estate had a 300 foot stables complex that burned down in 1907. Pieces of the house were demolished in the 1950's for a residential development, but two of the wings now make up two separate homes. The chapel was also converted into a private residence.
