Captain Marion Eppley House

Captain Marion Eppley founded the Eppley Foundation for Research as well as the Eppley Laboratory in Newport R.I.  He had William Lawrence Bottomely renovate a c. 1790 house in Oyster Bay he purchased that was previously owned by the McCoun family.  Bottomely moved the house back from the water and connected a few outbuildings into what we see today.  Click HERE to see the Eppley house on google earth.

I absolutely adore your blog! I am an architecture and mansion enthusiast. I am always thrilled to see people who value and restore these fabulous buildings. I found your blog to be fascinating. I am particularly intrigued by Gaenan because, as you say, it looks as if it is frozen in time. I located your blog through the LI Gold Coast message board. You are doing a wonderful job and I look forward to future updates. Thanks!
