The first 'Veraton', the Paul Drennan Cravath estate designed by Babb, Cook & Willard c. 1905 in Lattingtown, with landscaping by Guy Lowell. Cravath was a prominent attorney with the firm of Cravath, Swaine & Moore and represented the United States Treasury at the Inter-Allied Conference in Paris in 1917. Click HERE for more on 'Veraton'. The house burned down in 1908 and Cravath would rebuild on the same site in 1911 though the second 'Veraton' burned in 1914. The estate eventually became The Creek Club.
