The magnificent Pierce Estate in its heyday. It was located on the corner of Lindell Ave. and Merriam Ave, where Pierce Park is now.
The stables (upper center in the photo) were recently torn down to make way for the Boys & Girls Club Teen Center. To the left of the main building was a greenhouse, (Palm Court) built for Harry Pierce’s wife. It was said to be filled with palms and orange trees.
The Lindell Avenue entrance can still be seen… two heavy concrete posts. The property is now owned by The Trustees of Reservations.
