'The Wings' was built c. 1875 for Charles Anderson Dana on West Island in Glen Cove. The house had Olmsted landscaping, making it the earliest Olmsted commission on the North Shore. Dana passed away in 1897 and the estate was sold to William Lamon Harkness who incorporated part of the house into a new house for himself. In 1929 the property was sold to Junius Spencer Morgan, son of J.P. Morgan Jr., who remodeled the house into a guest house for what would become his estate 'Salutation'.
