Pavilions and Other Dwellings

Edgemont South Pavillion

Milton Grigg seamlessly incorporated many Jeffersonian elements into

his renovations and additions at Edgemont. Among them are two

underground passageways with lunette windows that lead to a pair of

dependencies he designed. They contain sitting rooms, bedrooms, baths, and kitchen areas. Sheltered from the elements, the symmetrical links between the main house and its outbuildings borrow a design concept Jefferson employed at Monticello and on the Lawn at the University of Virginia.

Edgemont farm manager's house

In addition to the twin dependencies attached to the main house, other dwellings on the property include a stone and weatherboard farm manager’s house, a cabin on a wooded lot, and a restored two-story log house. These structures are set against a backdrop of forested mountain terrain that rises to an elevation of nearly 1,000 feet.
