'Hilaire', the George E. Fahys estate designed by James O'Connor c. 1910 in Matinecock. Fahys was president of Joseph Fahys & Co. and the Alvin Silver Company of Sag Harbor. He was also a founder of the Piping Rock Club which sat across the street from 'Hilaire'. At age 89 he shot and killed himself in the lavatory of his study.
