'Vergemere', the Albert C. and Marie Stokes Bostwick estate designed by Rogers & Zogbaum sometime between 1900-1911 in Mamaroneck, New York. Bostwick, who died in 1911, was a noted horse and yachtsman and son of Jabez Bostwick, founding partner of Standard Oil. His widow would go on to remarry the lawyer Fitch Gilbert, a descendant of the founder of Gilbertsville, New York. During her marriage to A.C. Bostwick the couple had five children; A.C. Bostwick Jr., Dunbar Bostwick, George (Pete) Bostwick and Lillian Stokes Bostwick Phipps (wife of Ogden Phipps), all of Old Westbury, NY and Dorothy Stokes Bostwick Smith Campbell (wife of Joseph Campbell). In 1926 the estate became the clubhouse to the Beach Point Club. Click HERE to see 'Vergemere' on google earth and HERE on bing.
