March 1890 - ROBERT ORDERS A GREENHOUSE AND POTTING HOUSE FOR THE PROPERTY
A Lord & Burnham greenhouse with rose house and vinery and attached potting house is erected at one end of a large garden area on the east side of the estate. The potting house is in the American Colonial style. In selecting Lord & Burnham, the Suckleys are in good company. The firm also designed the greenhouses at Ferncliff, the John Jacob Astor estate in Rhinebeck.
