General Francis Vinton Greene estate designed by Frances Laurens Vinton Hoppin of Hoppin & Koen c. 1901 on Ocean Avenue in Newport, Rhode Island but pictured here under the ownership of Charles Frederick Hoffman. Hoffman was President of the Union Club and Treasurer of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. He died at 'Armsea Hall' at the age of 63 in 1919 and the estate was passed on to his wife. The following decades saw a series of owners and the estate was eventually purchased for development. 'Armsea Hall' was demolished c. 1969. Click HERE for an early 1930s aerial photo.
