Wolfington Hall was built in 1894 for John Marshall Gest by William L. Price (1861-1916). Price was a disciple of Frank Furness and is credited with establishing the character of two of the nation's great resorts: Atlantic City and Miami. Among his biggest and best known projects were the Marlborough, the Blenheim, and Traymore hotels, all in Atlantic City and now demolished.
