General:
Designed in 1916 by architect William Adams Delano of Delano & Aldrich for Bertram G. Work, president of B. F. Goodrich, Oak Knoll was named after one of the largest oak trees on Long Island, which stands in the estate's gardens. With decorative ironwork by Samuel Yellin, the house and its grounds featured formal gardens, teahouses, terraces, pools, fountains, and pergolas. Still existing from the original design is a Roman style stone entrance court with sculptures and ironwork, from which there is a curving road to a second court with a fountain on one side and the front facade of the house on the other.
Persons and firms associated with the property include William Adams Delano (architect and landscape architect, 1916); Delano & Aldrich (architects, 1916); Samuel Yellin (ironworker, 1916); Bertram G. Work (former owner, 1916-1931?); Mr. and Mrs. Joel Ellis Fisher (former owners, 1931-1967); and Mr. and Mrs. Bronson Trevor (former owners, 1967-1995).
