- Coindre Hall - built in 1906 by George Mckesson Brown, its design was inspired by two castles in the south of France, located in Huntington Harbor Long Island. After the 1929 stock crash, Mr. Brown lost the estate, and it went through a few changes in ownership. As a school, an addition was added to it, among other changes. Now open to the public. For additional information phone 516-424-8230
Later I received more E-Mail that said:
I would like to advise, as I look upon a picture of Coindre Hall here in
my office, that I was a student there during the years of 1960 to 1964.
At one time Coindre Hall was a private boarding school of approx. 100
students under the guidance of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart.
I must say that it was a great school and a great place to live. From the
magnificant entrance, high ceilings, and wood work you would not believe, it
was perfect for the purpose it served.
Other history on the castle is available on the net or through Long Island
Mansions and Gardens on the net.
The castle has a telephone number of: 516-424-8230.
