Adair is a country estate built in 1927 by Frank Hogan as a gift to his only daughter, Dorothy Adair, upon the occasion of her marriage to John W. Guider. Its scenic grounds and gardens were designed by the Olmsted Brothers, and its 200 acres are managed as a tree farm and for multiple use, including snowshoeing, hiking, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling.
