The Historic House

Background and History

Skye House is a well-renowned Historic Home situated in the Village of Northport.  The home embraces a refreshing look at the past while embracing all the modern Amenities.

The home was built in 1877 by local lumber baron William Gill for his wife Martha. Craftsmen of the highest level were employed in its creation using both local and imported materials.   If you look closely you will notice exquisite details such as the detailed carvings on the marble fireplace, the art deco door knobs, and detail on the Lady's monogrammed silverware.

The home has evolved over 6 generations and reflects the lifestyle, taste and interests of each generation.  A rotating collection of over 100 years of art and objects can be seen in the main house. 

As well as its role as a popular attraction, Skye House also hosts events and is an important focal point for the local community. To find out more about The 201, please get in touch or visit us in person. We look forward to welcoming you.
