'The Orchards', the Elisha Dyer residence designed by Howard & Frenaye c. 1927 in Brookville. Dyer was president of the advisory council for the Cooper Union Museum, president of the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Association, trustee with SPLIA and a member of the executive committee for Old Westbury Gardens among other things. He was the grandson of Governor Elisha Dyer of Rhode Island. Bradley Delehanty was hired in 1939 to completely redesign the house which can be seen HERE.
