The Sarah Gardiner Residence
The Sarah Diodati Gardiner residence designed by Wyeth & King c. 1941 in East Hampton. Gardiner built the home on land that had been in her family for generations, on the western side of Main Street. I believe the house replaced the family's 'White House', which was mentioned in a '39 NYTimes article as set to be either renovated or torn down to be replaced by "a more modern house". Sarah Gardiner purchased Gardiner's Island in 1937, preventing it from being foreclosed upon after a series of deals with other members of her family.
