Inscription. The country estate of financier Thomas Fortune Ryan and his wife Ida Barry Ryan was built in 1901, replacing an 1860s structure of stockbroker David Groesbeck. This 44-room mansion contained a private chapel, two bowling alleys and electric elevator. The philanthropics of the Ryans included development of Suffern's fire department and buildings for Good Samaritan Hospital and Sacred Heart Church. Mrs. Ryan resided here until her death in 1917.
