Jackson House, Fishkill, NY

The Jackson House was located at the southwest quadrant of the intersection of Main Street and Jackson Street in Fishkill, NY. The house was a nineteenth century home of Dutchess County Judge Joseph I. Jackson and part of the Village of Fishkill National Register Historic District. For a time the building served as an office for Mid-Hudson Medical Group (I remember going to it as a child!).

A rear addition to the building was demolished some time between 2011 and 2013, and then the rest of the historic structure was demolished in December 2013. These pictures depict the house in March 2011, March 2013, and then its demolition.

80 Windsor Highway, New Windsor, NY

The house was constructed in the mid-nineteenth century and the barn was over 50 years old.  These buildings were part of a farm that previously operated at the property at least until the 1950s. The house had been unoccupied for approximately 20 years.  In 2010 the barn was being utilized by the owners of the property, the Masonic Fellowship of Newburgh.

Some time after 2010, the structures were razed.  The property is now the Mason’s Ridge Apartments.

Abandoned Residences, Musillo Lane, Saugerties, NY

These residences/cottages were constructed in the 1940s and 1950s.  The property was originally owned by the Musillo family, which is the name of the road now.  A few more buildings were originally on this property (as evidenced by the old sketch of the property).  These properties were photographed in 2010; by 2012, they were completely demolished.
