The Henry F. Atherton Estate
The Henry Francis Atherton estate designed by James O'Connor c. 1919 in Upper Brookville. Atherton was chairman of the board of Allied Chemical and Dye and secretary of the National Aniline and Chemical Company. In 1937 Atherton's 21 year old son was found shot in the head in his bedroom the day before he was to return to Harvard for his final year of school in an apparent suicide.
