Caumsett at Lloyd Neck, NY Estate of Marshall Field III

The Marshall Fields: The Evolution of an American Business Dynasty

The Marshall Field III estate at Lloyd Harbor New York was built in 1922 by the heir of the great Chicago Department store, Marshall Fields. Situated on 1,700 acres along the Long Island Sound, the house, modeled on the great Georgian houses of England was designed by John Russell Pope along with many of the outbuildings. The entire estate today is now owned by New York State and is preserved as a parkland to be enjoyed by the public. Below are some aerial views of the estate taken during its heyday.
