The Library & Dard Hunter

Our next room is the Dard Hunter Library. Dard lived at the Gomez Mill House from 1912-1918, and was a craftsman and papermaker. During his time here, Dard Hunter would become famous for his creations, which were the first-ever handmade books to be designed and constructed by one person.

While living in the House, Dard installed the bookshelves seen above. The books seen on display were donated by Mildred Starin and the Gomez Mill House Foundation.

Opposite Dard's bookshelves is this panel of stained glass. Dard made the leaded, stained glass depicting wooden ships on the Hudson River.
