As America emerged as an industrial power in the 19th century, New York City was its financial epicenter and the country's captains of industry looked to Long Island as their playground, and on it were built some of America's most lavish estates, or as they were likely known to their owners, their country homes. Kirby Hill Estate in Muttontown NY commissioned by Joseph Sampson Stevens estate designed by Warren & Wetmore c. 1900s. Kirby Hill is now The Kuvykin Estate and one of the last remaining private gold coast mansions.
