Stanford White Lecture

Southampton Historical Society at Whitefield, 155 Hill Street

The Orchard, a Southampton estate designed by Stanford White, will be the subject of the second Samuel L. Parrish lecture, to be delivered by Gary Lawrance, an architect and co-author of “Houses of the Hamptons: 1880-1930,” next Thursday at 5 p.m. in the music room at Whitefield, 155 Hill Street.

Mr. Lawrance will discuss the evolution of the Orchard from an early Greek-revival farmhouse to the 16-acre estate built in 1895 for James L. Breese, a financier. Considered one of White’s finest summer homes, it is now the Whitefield Condominiums.

Tickets, which are $140, $125 for members of the Southampton Historical Society, must be reserved by Tuesday, through the society’s website.
