Abandoned Victorian Mansion, Saugerties, New York 2011

Back in about 2003 or 2004, I visited this same house with my best friend and took a series of amazing pictures of the inside.  (Most of them are featured here.  To check them out, please keep hitting the back button until you get to them).  So when I found myself in Saugerties recently, I remembered the house, but had no idea where it was or how to find it (my friend had been driving).   Later, on a return trip through town, I had forgotten about the house, but decided to drive around and see this beautiful little town, and there it was.  I slammed on the brakes, flipped a U-turn, and pulled into the overgrown parking area.  Whereas years ago it was open, now it’s all boarded up.  It seemed less safe to go inside this time, maybe because I was alone.  So I just took exterior shots.  This one, looking head on, makes my heart ache.  I hope someone with a lot of money will buy this place and restore its glory.  This house deserves to be lived in and loved.

    I fell in love with this mansion (and with the town) when I passed through Saugerties 2 days ago thanks to my gps making me avoid tolls and highways. I almost slammed the brakes too, its beauty is definitely a road hazard. I just screamed to my friend “Look! a haunted mansion! Me want, me want!” I do hope too that somebody could restore it to its well deserved past glory, leaving her all boarded up like that is cruel.
