'Heathermere', the James Cresson Parrish Jr. estate built sometime in the early 20th century in the Shinnecock Hills in Southampton. Parrish was an attorney whose uncle Samuel Longstreth Parrish founded the Parrish Art Museum. His father, J.C. Parrish Sr., had a Grosvenor Atterbury designed house on First Neck Lane which is still extant. 'Heathermere' has since been demolished.
