The first 'Killenworth', the George duPont Pratt estate designed by William B. Tubby c. 1897 in Glen Cove, with landscaping by the Olmsted Brothers. Pratt demolished this house in 1912 and replaced it with his much larger 'Killenworth' by Trowbridge & Ackerman c. 1913, click HERE for more. George, along with brothers Frederic, Harold and Herbert all either demolished and rebuilt or significantly altered their existing Glen Cove country houses starting around 1910. Click HERE to see where the first 'Killenworth' stood and where the current one stands on google earth.
