The William F. Ladd Residence
The William F. Ladd residence, designed by Peabody, Wilson & Brown c. 1920 in Cedarhurst. Ladd, a member of the New York Stock Exchange, shot himself to death in his Palm Beach home in 1949. The house is very similar to the PWB designed Cortland Barnes residence shown yesterday. The house has since been demolished but some outbuildings still remain.
