Coindre Hall
The grounds are open to the public to walk on but it is an active school


Around 1912 George McKesson Brown had this medieval French ch√Ęteau built overlooking Huntington Harbor
He and his family made money in the pharmaceutical business and was a friends of William K. Vanderbilt


He helped sponsor the 1906 Vanderbilt Cup and entered his Mercedes race car in to the competition as number 7


Part of the original driveway would have gone under this car port by a side entrance


During the depression he lost everything along with the house


The gently sloping lawn runs down to the waters edge and the boat house
