Dedicated to the preservation of Long Island's 'gold coast' estates and other things old.
When carefully examining these rooms, it's easy to see how the famous daughter imbibed style growing up
DED - famous daughter - who???
DED - I'll assume you mean Millicent Rogers?http://tmagazine.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/03/16/fabulous-dead-people-millicent-rogers/Colorized photo from Google Books Black Point "The Lost Hamptons" - http://books.google.com/books?id=Pm4KQwx4j7MC&pg=PA93&lpg=PA93&dq='Black+Point',+the+Henry+Huddleston+Rogers+estate&source=bl&ots=V72KApzflt&sig=uW4vQ-i51T_6we8vLNr0GEnxDcM&hl=en&ei=UTIJTd7sDYX4sgawzL2TAw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=11&ved=0CFoQ6AEwCg#v=onepage&q='Black%20Point'%2C%20the%20Henry%20Huddleston%20Rogers%20estate&f=false"Black Point" page 193 -http://issuu.com/acanthus_press/docs/houses_of_the_hamptons_excerpt
HPHS, Millicent Rogers is correct for a hundred. And of course, her lucky grandchildren still live in her father's wonderful Port of Missing Men.
looks like these folks had a fear of not being able to sit down when they wanted to. these few pics show at least 100 chairs. they also must have been the first foodies as they appear to have several dining rooms.i have to agree with DED tho - great interiors that match the eclecticism of the exterior and beautiful landscaping. i suppose those great murals in the room with the vaulted ceiling became bulldozer fodder.security word def - "tedlyp" - an STD transmitted by a certain senator from a state much too near to Maine.
Millicent Rogers was HH's granddaughter. Mai Rogers Coe, who married William Robertson Coe & built Coe Hall at Planting Fields, was his daughter.
