The H. Victor Newcomb residence of Elberon (Long Branch), NJ; McKim, Mead & White, architects, 1880. In its time it was considered a stunning example of the emerging American shingle style and sat comfortably between an expansive lawn and the ocean. This summer palace was built for about $33,000 and, although several changes were made in 1946, still stands as the Long Branch Historical Museum. See if you can find some of the major renovations.
Did you notice that the home was changed into a one-and-a-half-story structure, the shingles were covered, the right porch was removed, windows changed, shutters removed and the left facade changed?
