The H.H. Pell Estate
The Howland Haggerty Pell estate, originally part of the Willets family homestead, enlarged c. 1910 in Old Westbury. Pell was a founding member and partner of the firms S.H.P. Pell & Co. and Pell & White. He was also a retired lieutenant commander of the New York Naval Militia and served as the paymaster of the USS Indiana during World War I. Pell was married to Mary Willets from 1895-1919 and the property was originally in the name of her mother. Most of the residence was demolished sometime between 1950 and 1966 but click HERE to see where the house stood on google earth and HERE on bing.
