A home away from homeConstructed in 1882, by Hiram King this large, two-story home was purchased by George W. Vanderbilt to house his rangers. Ranger George Gillespie and his family boarded eight forestry students in the rooms upstairs. For two meals each day, Mrs. Gillespie fed the students along with her family. Part of the garden near the house became a seedling nursery for school projects.
