Fieldstone Hall

"...Samuel Nickerson left Cape Cod in 1847 as a young man and went to Chicago. One year later, now in the distillery business, Samuel married Matilda Crosby, a Brewster native... Samuel became involved with banking in 1863, serving as president of the First National Bank of Chicago for 25 years.

In 1890, Samuel Nickerson and Matilda, built the impressive Fieldstone Hall, their Brewster summer residence along the ocean edge, on a knoll, and today the mansion serves guests as the Oceanedge Resort. Sam and Matilda's son Roland and wife Addie later occupied the estate. This was the social and political navigation point for Brewster..."
