An Early View of The Wigwam

placeholder gif[View of early Mansion with round green house]

On the left of this view is the east front of The Wigwam. On the far right is Isaac Singer's Riding and Exercise Pavilion (now the Rotunda). In the centre linking the two buildings is a large octagonal palm house. This photo was taken before 1900 when Paris Singer commissioned the French landscape architect Achille Duchene to lay out the gardens.
