In 1902, Louis Comfort Tiffany began construction of a large house and country estate on 580 acres of land a few miles from Oyster Bay, Long Island. On the site of the once popular resort, Hotel Laurelton, Tiffany erected an 84-room house, built conservatories and stables, and laid out 60 acres of carefully planned gardens said to cost more than the mansion itself. Called Laurelton Hall, the grand estate was the most personal and extensive project of the artist’s career. The Morse Museum’s collection of Laurelton Hall objects, architectural elements, and ornaments is the largest single collection of surviving materials from Tiffany’s turn-of-the-century home and is now housed in a new 12,000 square-foot wing that opened in February 2011.
