In 1915, Sigmund Lehman and his sons, members of the incredibly successful Lehman Brothers investment banking family, each created his own sanctuary in Tarrytown, on the banks of the Hudson River. The three estates--Millbrook, Elmbrook, and Willow Pond--were contiguous, and each was renowned for its individual merits. Barrett's lecture will provide a thorough look at these three properties, incorporating visuals, never seen before, discovered in private collections here in the United States and abroad.
Admission is $5 at the door. The Hudson Chautauqua is located at 49A Eighth Street, between Columbia and Warren streets.
