When 'Elm Court' Was For Sale

A brochure advertising 'Elm Court', the Edgar F. Luckenbach Sr. estate in Sands Point designed by Egerton Swartwout c. 1921 with landscaping by Jacques Greber. Luckenbach was the president of both the Luckenbach Steamship Co., Inc. and the Luckenbach Terminal Co. The house eventually became the Sands Point Day School and later the Maimonides School and was demolished in 1977 when the latter closed. Click HERE to see where 'Elm Court' stood on google earth.

I went to camp there in the early 70's. Sad to hear that it was demolished.
