The Charles Steele Estate
The estate of Charles Steele (originally built for J.F.D. Lanier) built by James Brown Lord c. 1891 in Old Westbury. Steele gave the house an extensive renovation after he purchased it from Lanier. Steele was a partner in the law firm of Seward, Guthrie, Morawetz & Steele. He was also a partner at J.P. Morgan and Comapny.
