Singer Castle on Dark Island


The Singer Castle on Dark Island is located on the St. Lawrence River. It is the only remaining castle on the river that was fully completed, furnished, and resided in during the heyday of great builders in New York. The Bourne family were the original owners from its construction in 1905 until the mid 1960’s. Mr. Frederick Bourne was the fifth President of the Singer Sewing Machine Company, hence the name “Singer Castle”.
