Whitridge House

The Whitridge House was the eighteenth century estate of Dr. William Whitridge. The home and its surrounding farmlands remained in the family until the 1950s most often serving as a summer home. Traveling artist Joseph Shoemaker Russell captured these images of daily life on the Whitridge estate in the early 1800s. Painter Worthington Whittredge is related to family and painted the landscape from the buildings cupola around the turn of the last century.

The house is private property and should not be approached.
