The Homestead

Notes:
The architectural treasures that make Glen Spey so special are largely the legacy of George Ross Mackenzie and his family. Mackenzie, born in Scotland, worked his way up from a line mechanic to become the fourth president of the multi-national Singer Sewing Machine Company in 1882. By that time, he had already purchased property in what was then known as South Lebanon and begun the transition to what he called Glen Spey, or “valley of the spring.” His own castellated mansion, The Homestead, is no longer extant, but several other buildings connected to him are, including three of the mansions built by his children.
