Description

Edgehill Manor was the former summer home and art studio of William Singer Jr. It has since been demolished, but other parts of the estate remain.

William Singer, Jr. (1868-1943) was a local painter who co-founded the Washington County Museum Of Fine Arts. His style employs a technique called
pointillism, in which small points of color are used to create a vivid
overall effect. Singer's work can be found in private collections and in
museums all over the world.

Built in 1904, the large house echoed the Arts & Crafts style of that era, but also featured different architectual styles such as a Tudor entrance porch, stain glass windows representative of an earlier era and a distinctive polygonal tower capped with a copper dome.

Two of the estate's out buildings --- a water tower and a barn --- remain. Still a private residence, Edgehill's barn is sometimes used for events, especially an annual antique show.
