After Eugene V. R. Thayer II married Gladys Brooks in a lavish Newport wedding in 1903, the young couple decided to build a country home in Lancaster. Plans for the $200,000 estate were done by the Boston firm of Winslow and Bigelow. Henry Forbes Bigelow was well known to the family, as he had recently completed work on the Col. J. E. Thayer's Bird Museum and would soon marry Eugene V. R. Thayer's sister Susan.
