“Westglow” was named by artist and writer Elliott Daingerfield, who built the stately manor house as a summer home in 1917. Daingerfield called his estate Westglow because “the sunsets are always glowing, never glaring” as evening settles over the Blue Ridge Mountains to the west.  Listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, the Westglow Mansion features elegantly decorated guest rooms, a formal dining room, a library, and a parlor with a Steinway baby grand piano and a stunning view of the mountains. Numerous original Daingerfield paintings are on display in the Mansion for visitors to enjoy.
