In honor of Halloweenie, a haunted Mansion...
Okay, I don't know if it really haunted, but it looks like it should be, right?
On our drive from Hudson to the Vanderbilt Estate, we took a small detour to see Wyndcliffe Manor. It was very cool, even though we were a bit far away due to a security fence. It isn't really listed anywhere, but somehow it showed up on my google maps as we were driving. So we took a small detour.
It was built in 1852 for a New York socialite as a week-end and summer home.
In 1866 it was sold to the Fink family, who passed it around the family until they lost everything and sold it at auction in 1934 and had various owners for two decades.
It was finally abandoned in the 1950s.
In 2016 it was sold for $120,000 at auction. The owner filed to tear it down and built something else here. But here it still stands. Well, stands-ish.
It was a very cool diversion on the drive.
