The Alexander C. Humphreys Estate
The Alexander Crombie Humphreys estate designed by C.P.H. Gilbert between 1899-1902 in Glen Cove. Humphreys was an engineer who founded the gas utilities firm of Humphreys & Glasgow and was also second president of the Stevens Institute of Technology in NJ. This home was eventually purchased by Frank W. Woolworth but would burn and be replaced with the current incarnation of 'Winfield Hall'. Click HERE for more on the Humphreys residence.
