Gilded Moments – Carnegie’s Dungeness

Gilded Moments – “Champagne, laughter, and witty conversation. The Carnegie’s Dungeness was far more than a vacation retreat; it was the heart of a vibrant social life, a semi-tropical mecca where senators, statesmen, and celebrities were guests at elaborate parties. After Lucy Carnegie’s death in 1916, the house was used infrequently. Changing economic conditions such as the Great Depression and the demise of industrial tycoons spelled the end of an age. Its history is an abandoned mansion, a fading snapshot.”
