WHAT IS WAINWRIGHT HOUSE?
When Colonel J. Mayhew Wainwright was stationed in France during WW1, he was headquartered at an 18th century chateau called Raincheval, which came to have a big impact on him. On the night before he was to lead his men to battle, he promised himself that if he came through the war alive and made it back to Rye, he would build a chateau resembling Raincheval on the family land on Milton Point. He did, completing Wainwright House in 1928.
Wainwright House, Inc was established in 1951 by Fonrose Wainwright, in memory of her parents, Col. and Mrs. Wainwright. Created as a center for the development of human potential, WH has been home to the Laymen’s Movement and UN Conferences on Conflict Resolution.
Today, Wainwright House remains a center serving the community with outstanding programs and classes designed to enhance your potential and those around you.
