Historic Interest

English-style country house originally built in 1800 by a Revolutionary soldier and modernized and landscaped in the early 1900s by George Westinghouse Jr., the son of the famous inventor. When Queen Wilhelmina of Holland came to Devonfield for a few months in 1942 to escape the looming Nazi takeover of her country, she was a guest at Devonfield. President Roosevelt paid a visit to the Queen and her daughter Juliana and grand-daughters Irene and Beatrix (the current Queen of Holland).
