When The Barklie McKee Henry Estate Was For Sale

A brochure advertising the Barklie McKee Henry estate designed by Noel & Miller c. 1930 in Old Westbury. Henry was married to Harry Payne and Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney's daughter Barbara Whitney and later Margaret Trowbridge. He was a director at AT&T, president of the board of New York Hospital and a trustee at Cooper Union among other things. The house was demolished in 1975, the only Noel & Miller commission on Long Island to suffer that fate.
