In this special 75th anniversary year, we are fortunate to have a private residence, The Farm House at Meadow Spring, as the setting for the event. Located in Glen Cove, Long Island, Meadow Spring is a 100-acre residential enclave developed circa 1913 by the wealthy merchant Henry Lewis Batterman.
The residence, built in 1917 for financier A. Clarkson Runyon Jr., was architect, Mott B. Schmidt’s first Long Island commission: a Jacobean-inspired country house set against a lush garden featuring the primary elements of an original 1919 Olmsted Brothers design. Today, the building’s interior is a blend of the old and new – elegantly outfitted for a 21st-century family while preserving Schmidt’s classical architectural details.
