'High Elms', the Richard Stockton Emmet Sr. estate designed by Peabody, Wilson & Brown c. 1928 in Glen Cove, with landscaping by Ellen Shipman. Emmet was a partner with the law firm of Emmet, Marvin & Martin and served as the United States Minister to the Netherlands in 1933. He was married to Helen Pratt, daughter of Frederic Pratt who resided at 'Poplar Hill'. The house was demolished c. 1960 but stood roughly HERE (where High Elms Lane is today).
