Elverhoj by William B. Rhoads and Leslie Melvin


The Arts and Crafts Colony at Milton-on-Hudson

"Elverhoj (Danish for “hill of the fairies,” pronounced “El-ver-hoy”) was an Arts and Crafts colony established on the picturesque west shore of the Hudson River in 1912 by Danish American artists and craftsmen led by Anders Anderson. Little known today, the colony achieved a national reputation before World War I and earned a gold medal at the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition in San Francisco.

Many of the book’s more than 160 illustrations stem from an archive kept by Andersen that has only recently come to light.
