'Oheka' was built for Otto Hermann Kahn by Delano & Aldrich c. 1915 in what was then Cold Spring Harbor. Numerous individuals had a hand in landscaping the estate, including the Olmsted Brothers, Beatrix Jones Farrand and Lewis & Valentine. Kahn was a financier, capitalist and was the president and chairman of the board of the Metropolitan Opera. Following Kahn's death the house went through a handful of owners before being reborn as 'Oheka Castle', a hotel and catering hall. Click HERE to see 'Oheka' on google earth. A very big thank you to 'Kyle in CT' for sharing these photos.
