Long Island Mansions of the Gilded Age: The residence of John Sergeant Cram at Old Westbury, New York.

Not too much is known about this Tudor style mansion at Old Westbury. It is believed to have been built circa 1900 for John Sergeant Cram. Cram was a former Public Services Commissioner and President of the Dock Board of New York City. Mr. Cram died in 1936 and the mansion survived until the early 1980s, when it was destroyed by fire.
