'Killingworth'

Myron C. Taylor had Harrie Lindeberg make alterations to a pre civil war farm house in Lattingtown c. 1922. The home, 'Killingworth', was given 10 master bedrooms along with a 47 foot solarium and a music room of almost the same size. Taylor was the chairman of U.S. Steel.

The gardens were designed by Vitale & Geiffert with the help of Annette Hoyt Flanders. Below is the 6 acre lake which the house overlooked.
