Eugene V.R. Thayer II was the only member of the fourth generation to build an estate in Lancaster. Plans for Crownledge, as the estate was known, were drawn up by the architectural firm of Wadsworth and Bigelow in 1908. (Henry Forbes Bigelow, grand-nephew of the carpet loom inventor Erastus Bigelow, was well known to the family and, in fact, soon married Thayer's sister Susan.) Interior design for the $200,000 house was most likely done by Ogden Codman, who was frequently commissioned by the Thayer family to work on its homes in Boston, Lancaster, and Newport. Today, the mansion, located on Langen Road, is a private preparatory school called the Trivium.
