First built in 1918 by Alfred I. du Pont, it was sold in 1926 to Frederick E. and Amy Phipps Guest. They named the estate Templeton.
The New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) purchased it from the Guest Family in 1972 and renamed it after the famous Russian aviator, Alexander P. de Seversky.
It now serves as a conference, special events and dining center.
