The Carnegie

Dream Come True

In Edgartown, Andrew Carnegie’s dream lives on

In 1848, a 13-year-old boy and his family emigrated from Dunfermline, Scotland’s historic medieval capital, to the United States, in the town of Allegheny, Pennsylvania, essentially penniless, having sold all of their possessions to fund their voyage to America. This boy would one day preside over the largest steel corporation in the world and would command the title of the world’s richest man.

The Carnegie was featured in Cape Cod Home Magazine, Early Summer 2019 issue.
