Abandoned Farmstead, Hyde Park, NY

An abandoned farmstead was hidden in the woods across from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY.  Logging activities in May 2015 revealed these ruins after approximately 30 years of abandonment.  Historic mapping seems to indicate the property was initially developed in the mid 1800s.  A stone tower on the property would have had a great view of the Hudson River when the property was cleared.
