This once grand estate and mansion is not well documented, and few photos exist. The mansion was owned by Virginia Graham Fair Vanderbilt and was located at Jericho, Long Island, New York. Designed by architect John Russell Pope circa 1911, the entire estate is now a subdivision, and the mansion was demolished in the 1950’s - early 1960’s.
