Built in 1891-1892 by Dr. Frank Green of
Patent medicine fame. Built on the southern end of Long
Isalnd, Moultonborough, it commands a spectacular view
of the Belknap Mountain Range and the "Broads"
of the lake. It is known as "A Jewel on Long Island"
The construction of Windermere and its related buildings
was spread over two years. All the materials used came
by boat, barge, horseboat, and by steamboat from Lakeport,
NH. Approximately one hundred workmen camped in tents
on the property while the mansion was under construction.
This was customary in the days before the automobile made
possible the daily “portal to portal” approach.
Dr. Greene, while the building went on, frequently stayed
at the Long Island Inn as he watched and guided the progress.
Although the materials were transported by boat, and although
one hundred men were involved in the building which took
two years, the cost of the three main buildings: the mansion,
the gate house, and the barn, added up to $16,000.
Windemere is located
on Long Island off of Moultonborough Neck Road in Moultonborough,
