The Port of Missing Men is one of the last surviving mansions from the Gilded Age whose interior is unchanged since the Roaring Twenties. It was built by H.H. Rogers, Jr. whose father was the wealthiest man in the U.S in 1910.
The estate was created on over 2,000 acres on the Great Peconic Bay as a hunting lodge.

It may be the last Gilded Age mansion on Long Island owned by the original family. [Read more…] about Port of Missing Men: A Gilded Age Ghost Hunt
