Description: View of the trees and boulders at the side of a dirt road.
The place depicted in this image has been tentatively identified as Millbrook, N.Y., where the Thornes had their house, "The Crest." "The Crest" was the Thorne family's name for their house, Thorncrest, in Millbrook, NY. Designed by Edward Tuckerman Potter for George Hunter Brown, it was built in 1867 and called Millbrook House. The grounds were landscaped by Olmsted & Vaux. It was razed in 1950. --From a 1979 letter to Rollie McKenna from NYU Assistant Professor of Fne Arts Sarah Landau
