'The Oaces' Farm Group

The farm group to 'The Oaces', the Oliver Allen Campbell estate designed by James O'Connor c. 1919 in East Norwich.  It is unknown if the residence is extant but click HERE to see the farm group on google earth and HERE on bing.

While no longer en vogue I must say that I love these clapboard stable buildings. Not terribly practical for actual use - the haymow is often too difficult to access - but visually so quaint.

Off topic and not generally a paper used for a good citation but did anyone see the Friday Mar 8th NY Post article with Tommy Hitchcock's son indicating his dad was The Great Gatsby's Tom Buchanan? Interesting.

An added interesting quip 'The book’s famous trophy-wife character, Daisy, was not modeled after is mother, Hitchcock said.' Good to know.

wouldnt be too proud to spread the word that the Tom Buchanan character was modeled after my own dad.

anyone on LI know what the sttus is of the attempt to turn one of the former Hitchcock estates into a vast cemetery? Seems to have dropped out of the news over the last few years? Still owned by the church?

Around the corner on South Hollows Court there is a stucco home of what looks like older vintage. Is this possibly the Oaces main house?
