'Welwyn', the Harold I. Pratt estate designed by Babb, Cook & Willard c. 1906 in Glen Cove. Pratt was a chairman of the board of North American Reassurance Co., president of the boards of North Shore Community Hospital and Brooklyn Hospital and treasurer and director of Morris Building Co. among many other things. He hired Delano & Aldrich to design alterations to the house in the early 1920s which can be seen HERE. Click HERE for more on 'Welwyn' (be sure to scroll past today's post).
