The Derelict Greenhouses of 'Welwyn'
Recently uncovered from a couple of decades of unabated plant growth are the greenhouses to 'Welwyn', the Harold I. Pratt estate in Glen Cove. The main house was originally designed by Babb, Cook & Willard c. 1906 but Delano & Aldrich gave the house an extensive makeover in the 1920s. Click HERE for more on 'Welwyn'. The weeds around the greenhouses were cleared to create the 'Welwyn Farms Project', a future sustainable farm helping to feed the hungry. Click HERE to visit the 'Welwyn Farms Project' website.
