I understand that at the time this was the most extravagant and expensive estate built. Also, one time they had a party and gave as party favors uncut diamonds and rubies. The gems were hidden in sand, and the guests were given little shovels and pails (I forget what they were made of) to dig for them.

Eva Stotesbury died peniless. Hard to believe!

Wonderful views . . . most from a vintage 16mm film it appears. Ties right in with James T. Maher's chapter on Whitemarsh in "Twilight of Splendor." Thanks for the postilng !!!
