Are you looking to spend a few days down on Cape Cod during the long thanksgiving holiday, then the Ocean’s Edge Resort in Brewster is the place to be! The Mansion at Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club is an exquisite Victorian-style manse that houses the Ocean Grille, Bayzo’s Pub, and gorgeous flexible wedding, meeting and public spaces. The Mansion, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, resembles an English country manor with an eclectic blend of Renaissance Revival and Gothic themes.
Though the Mansion dates from 1912, its origins date years earlier to the original house on the site, Fieldstone Hall, which was built in 1890 by Samuel Mayo Nickerson, a prominent local figure with deep New England roots. Born in Chatham, Massachusetts in 1830, Nickerson is a descendant of Puritan settlers who landed on the Cape in the 1600s. Nickerson left school at the age of 17, and worked his way to Chicago where, by 1858, he had established a prosperous career as a distiller of alcohol and high-wines. That same year, he married Matilda P. Crosby of Brewster, and the couple gave birth to their only child, Roland, the following year. In 1863, Samuel co-founded the First National Bank of Chicago. He became President four years later, and held the position for nearly a quarter century before retiring as a multi-millionaire by 1891.
The pull of the Atlantic coast remained strong for Samuel, who returned frequently to Cape Cod throughout his career. As the story goes, one morning in the late 1880s he stood on a bluff in Brewster, jabbed his gold-tipped cane into the ground, and declared that a house should be built there for his son Roland, on a 48-acre parcel overlooking Cape Cod Bay. Fieldstone Hall was erected for Roland, his wife Addie, and their three children – Roland Jr., Samuel, and Helen.
Finished in 1890, the three-story home boasted four chimneys, and the property included a carriage house complete with a stone tower for taking in the expansive coastal views.
