'Seamoor' was built for Charles Millard Pratt c. 1890 by Lamb and Rich. C.M. Pratt was the eldest son of Charles Pratt, and was secretary, director and treasurer of Standard Oil Co., as well as the head of the syndicate that ran the LIRR and was the president of the board of the Pratt Institute. His estate, the first of the Pratt homes to be built in the Dosoris section, was named partially after his wife Mary Seymour Morris and was at one point close to 150 acres. The house is no longer standing.
