The Dr. P.B. Wyckoff Estate
The Dr. Peter Brown Wyckoff estate designed by Barney & Chapman c. 1900 in Southampton. Wyckoff began his career as a physician before becoming a partner in the stock brokerage firm of Munroe & Wyckoff and a member of the NY Stock Exchange. Wyckoff was a descendent of Cornelius Wijkoff who arrived here from Holland in 1649. The estate was later owned by Mrs. Jessie May Woolworth Donahue who gave it the name 'Wooldon Manor' and hired Treanor & Fatio to design a pool house c. 1931 that is still extant as a private residence. The house was demolished in 1941 but sat on Gin Lane. Interiors tomorrow.
