Historic Two Gables, originally designed for O. Babcock and now more popularly known as the Mr. T House, received a top down rehabilitation and a new east side addition for a great room and to expand the kitchen. The Laurance Armours acquired the estate in 1913 and after a fire in 1928, engaged David Adler to renovate the interiors and replace the charred wood shingle roof with slate tiles. This manor house underwent the most recent renovation in 2004.
