Kris I posted this article HERE with a request that we could perhaps re name the thread and avoid starting a new thread for each post about the theaters of NY.
What do you think?

This topic's architectural. The other considers what operating theaters are worth.
Thank you for posting the article, I am currently planning to visit every theater still standing that was designed by Thomas White Lamb and enjoyed reading this. I have done a lot of research on the works of Mr. Lamb and take great pride in my great grand fathers work. I have not been able to locate any photos of Mr. Lamb online and would like to know were you found the one in this thread.
The large house that Thomas had built in Elizabethtown was properly named by him as
"Greystones ". Any other name is incorrect. I have been to the house several times
and my mother has many vintage color slides of the property before it was sold.
My father Richard Lamb inherited the house directly.
Two unique aspects were the underground watering system for the expansive gardens
and three trout ponds.
Thomas is my Grandfather.
