When 'Wheatly' Was Up For Auction
A brochure advertising the auction of 'Wheatly', the Edwin D. Morgan III estate designed by McKim, Mead & White c. 1890 in Old Westbury (what was then Wheatly). This auction brochure follows THIS brochure when the house was for sale. No buyer had been found and the property was auctioned leading to the demolition of the center portion of the house (seen directly above) and the subdivision of the estate grounds in the early 1950s.
