The icon of Colonial Revival architecture in America, McKim, Mead & White's internationally celebrated cottage for Henry Augustus Coit Taylor of New York initiated the Adamesque-inspired Colonial design that continued through the Second World War and, in an abridged fashion, survives in America to the present. The house was demolished in 1952 for subdivision of its grounds. Some architectural salvage was incorporated into the adjacent outbuildings of Ocean Lawn and into a Colonial Revival subdivision, Johnson Terrace, then under construction on East Main Road in Middletown.
Stanford White was one of America's leading architects in the early 1900's. He designed a long series of houses for the rich, and numerous public, institutional, and religious buildings. His design principals embody the “American Renaissance”.
