'Edgecombe', the Henry Burr Barnes residence built c. 1895 in Southampton. Barnes was president of A.S. Barnes & Co., publishers, and vice-president of Manhattan Eye and Ear Hospital. 'Edgecombe' is pictured here under subsequent owner Dr. George A. Dixon who called the residence 'By-the-Way'. It is unconfirmed if the house is extant but it sat on Gin Lane.
