Biographical/historical note Stanford White (1853-1906) was an American architect, art collector and dealer, and partner in the architectural firm of McKim, Mead & White. White was responsible for prominent structures such as the second Madison Square Garden, the Metropolitan Club, the Judson Memorial Church, and the Washington Square Arch. White married Bessie Springs Smith of Long Island in 1884; their son Lawrence Grant White was born in 1887. White was notoriously shot and killed in 1906 by Harry Kendall Thaw in response to White's previous affair with Thaw's wife, actress Evelyn Nesbit.
Box Hill is the estate White designed shortly after his marriage to Bessie. Located in St. James, Long Island, the house served not only as the family home, but also as a showpiece to prospective wealthy clients. The estate was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.
