Singer Castle library: History and books galore

I recently spent tSingerLibraryime in the Thousand Islands and was lucky enough to tour Singer Castle on Dark Island, the historic home built in 1905 for the Bourne family, the patriarch of which was president of the Singer Manufacturing Company. Book lovers might enjoy this peek at the home’s walnut-paneled library, which includes a hidden wall panel that leads to a secret passageway once used by servants to fetch busy readers their drinks.

And before you ask, yes! The castle contains Singers aplenty.
