'Valley House', the A. Perry Osborn estate, an 18th century farmhouse enlarged by Warren & Clark c. 1919 in Old Brookville. Osborn's father was for many years the head of the Natural History Museum and Osborn himself was first vice-president and trustee. He was a lawyer with the firm of Winthrop & Stimson (among others) and later a banker and senior partner in the firm of Redmond & Co. The house was extant until very recently when it was demolished and replaced with THIS. Click HERE to see where 'Valley House' stood on google earth and HERE on bing (where it is pictured extant).
