  In 1910, a couple from New York City bought property near Wurtsboro with the idea of making it a summer girls camp.  My house was built in 1911 from a recycled barn frame on a new concrete foundation.  A second house was built next door in 1913.  This camp lasted until the early 50's.
  By the time I purchased it in 2003, it had long been converted into a year around house but not much had been done for improvements. I spent five years in my spare time completely renovating the house and giving it the classical styling.
The garage was added in 2011-2012 and the house roof upgraded in 2014.
