'Thornham', the Landon Ketchum Thorne estate designed by William F. Dominick c. 1928 in Bay Shore, with landscaping by Umberto Innocenti and Ferruccio Vitale. Thorne was president and partner of the banking firm of Bonbright & Co. among many other positions and was at one time the commissioner of the Long Island State Parks Commission. His granddaughter, Julia Thorne, was the first wife of Senator John Kerry. The house was demolished in 1976. Click HERE to see where 'Thornham' stood on google earth.
