'Meudon' in B&W

'Meudon', the William D. Guthrie residence in Lattingtown, designed by C.P.H. Gilbert c. 1900. The house was demolished in the 1960s and little remains today, click HERE to see Meudon's ruins. Click HERE to see where 'Meudon' stood on google earth.




The greenhouses.

The bathing pavilion which still stands.

Why demolish the house yet keep the bathing pavilion? Is the latter a residence now?

The bathing pavilion is a boat house and beach house for the residents of the community. I believe many of the B&W pictures seen above hang inside the pavilion.
