'Easton' Then & Now
'Easton', the Evelyn Marshall Field Suarez estate built by David Adler in 1931 in Muttontown, pictured in 1935 and 2009. E.M.F.S. built this house after her divorce from Marshall Field III, owner of 'Caumsett' in Lloyd Harbor, and before she married Diego Suarez (where the two would go on to move HERE). The estate was carved out of property belonging to 'Knollwood' next door. The house was landscaped by Innocenti & Webel. In 1951 the estate was sold and in '53 the central portion of the house was razed. A smaller interpretation of the house (based on Robert E. Lee's birthplace 'Stratford Hall') was rebuilt on the old foundation in 1989. Click HERE to see 'Easton' on google earth.
