Our Daytrip began at Westbury House, the 23-room Charles II-style mansion, built in 1906 on 160 acres, by John Shaffer Phipps (1874–1958), heir to a U.S. Steel fortune, for his British wife, Margarita.

The painting on the left is a John Singer Sargent commission.
The house is filled with exquisite paintings.
