William Kemble, co-owner of the West Point Foundry, which has recently been designated a National Historic Landmark built "The Cottage" in 1826 as his elegant country home. In this magnificent setting, the industrialist entertained nineteenth century military and political luminaries including President Lincoln, Winfield Scott and Washington Irving. The home has been restored with meticulous attention to original architectural details, preservation of the majestic Federal style rooms and furnished with elegant antiques.
