Dorothy Weir Young (1890 - 1947)
After her father's death, Dorothy would manage the 253-acre property in Branchville and care for her step-mother Ella Baker Weir. Dorothy would inherit the property in 1931, give 60-acres to Cora Weir Burlingham, and marry Mahonri Young. Although she was dedicated to preserving her father's legacy, this gallery is dedicated to the works Dorothy created later in life.
