The Stonehouse / Wenlo-on-the-Bay
Originally built for Thomas Clapham in 1868 by Jacob Wrey Mould in Roslyn Harbor. The original house was in the High Victorian Gothic style and Mould was a founding member of the AIA. In 1905 the house was purchased by Benjamin Stern who refitted the house into a French chateau. The current incarnation of the house was the result of a rebuilding due to an extensive fire in the 1960's which damaged much of the structure.
