History

Early 1900s Lenox became known as the “Inland Newport” and at least forty-two millionaires were known to spend their summers here during this time, including John Sloane, a relative of the Vanderbilts and co-owner of the famous furniture firm W & J Sloane. He bought the property in 1894 and built his Peabody and Sterns-designed “cottage” Wyndhurst, referred to today as the Mansion. This was known as the “Cottage Era” where cottages were defined as a secondary residence with a minimum of thirty rooms and twenty acres.
