The prominent Philadelphia banker Edward Stotesbury was one of the wealthiest men in America in the early 20th century, and an important benefactor of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.  In 1916 he and his second wife Eva Roberts Cromwell commissioned the architect Horace Trumbauer to build Whitemarsh Hall, a palatial residence which was the third largest house in the US at the time and referred to as the 'American Versailles' because of its extensive French-style gardens laid out by Jacques Gréber.  The house was furnished by Duveen and decorated by White, Allom & Co. of London and Alavoine of Paris.  After Stotesbury's death in 1938, his widow sold the property, and it gradually fell into disrepair and was finally demolished in 1980.
