Staten island in Richmond County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Heritage of New York
Designed in the Greek Revival style, this house was built about 1850 by Henry H. Biddle, a prominent landowner. A nearby grove, favored as a site for temperance and revival meetings, bore his family name. A large, square, glass-enclosed cupola originally surmounted the roof. George T. Brewster, the sculptor, lived in the house and used a nearby barn as his studio between 1896 and 1933.
