'Lands End'

A 1955 aerial of 'Lands End', the Harvey Dow Gibson estate altered by Walker & Gillette c. 1926 in Lattingtown.  The house was originally built c. 1850 and sat on part of the George Galt Bourne estate.  Bourne and his wife Helen C. Whitney divorced in 1924 and in 1926 she remarried Gibson, altering this house to fit their needs.  Click HERE to see 'Lands End' on google earth and HERE on bing.  Photo courtesy of John Martin.

Zach, you and I seem to be running into the same people lately. My next blog post will include mention of Harvey Dow Gibson Hall at Bowdoin College (post-original partners MM&W).

Isn't this the house that belonged to some terribly social plastic surgeon and his even more social wife fairly recently?

yes, that's who I was trying to think of. Harvey Dow Gibson Hall at Bowdoin, built in 1954, makes a cameo in my post today about some gilded age New York interiors that found their way to Maine.
