1903 Mansion turned medical and rehab facility forgotten in the hills (LOTS of pictures)

Quick history on this incredible place

Tucked away up top a large hill deep in the woods lays this Georgian revival style building. Originally built in 1902-03 by a renowned architect who built hundreds of houses all varying in style in the New England area, built this to be his summer estate. In 1949 it was sold to the state after it's inherited owners could not afford the upkeep and was turned into a medical and rehabilitation center dealing mostly with substance abuse. Sometime in the 1980's was the last day its doors were opened and the facility closed remaining forgotten where it still stands.


Now our journey and pictures

After a long climb up a crumbling paved road to the top of the hill we stumbled upon signs of an old building. A few old sign posts and stone carved with "Welcome". The hollow letters filled with spider eggs.

We pressed on about a quarter mile up more and found what we were looking for, the manor. It's massive, and equally beautiful. We wandered around the grounds of the building before entering. The overgrown pool in the back, the wrap around porches, the hair dresser building, and especially its placement on the top of the hill made for some incredible views.

We decided to climb a stairwell up and start our exploration from the top floor and work our way down. Once we were inside, we walked through every hallway and into every room exploring all the structure had to offer. At one point on the top floor I was taking pictures and noticed my group had left me behind. As I was standing there alone I could hear a constant scratching/digging sound above me. I called them over to listen to it to, once they heard it they were a little spooked too. We've had a few run ins with animals and squatters but I'm always prepared to run into something we shouldn't. Since I had the best flashlight I climbed into the attic first. It looked like something was nesting up there and as I scanned the area with my light I caught a porcupine scurry across the floor, phew! Now that we cleared the area, we continued exploring.

We found many things left behind, like paperwork, name tags, lots of keys, rooms redesigned to be intake rooms, old phones and a few random but really cool finds. Like an old National Geographic from the 1988, a birds nest on a hanging fluorescent light and an incredible 1959 Precision Electronics vintage guitar tube amp. (I'm a guitarist so I was in total awe of this beautiful tube amp)

Here's the rest of my pictures, some are my attempts at photography while others are just to document some of this incredible building.
















Probably my favorite shot of the day






The 1959 PE 30PA Vintage Tube Amplifier.



Intake paperwork for clients, names/addresses have been redacted.



The birds nest on a hanging ceiling light



Furnace in the basement

Most of the attic was just beams, but there was this one unfinished looking room in there as well.

Everyone has a dark side, mines just a little more illuminated.

Enjoyed these pics! Thanks for an overall look-see. What a cool and unique find. Liked the filled in pool pic and the emergency call system and the exterior shots as well. Glad you cleared the area with the porcupine.

Great pics! I have been a lurker/fan of this forum since it started many years ago. I am heavy into photography, (more than anyone here could comprehend), but, my big interest in the last 3 years has been metal detecting. I love these historic sites for what is in the ground. We call it "Dirt Fishing"....
Cheers

Wow, nice find!!
Lightroom could fix the wide-angle/fisheye distortion, but its a matter of personal preference of course. nice shots

I appreciate the advice, I actually like the wide angle lens look, but there have been pictures I wish it wasn't. Thanks!

I last went here in Winter. It has such great views. I think my favorite part was the weird Santa hanging on the wall. Neat to see this place as it looks in Summer!

What a shame it's been abandoned. I wonder if there would be any chance to salvage it, considering the horrible drug crisis in the states right now (and Canada as well) it'd be awesome to see it reused.

Wow, so glad to see this place isn't tagged up or showing any visible signs of scrapping. That pool is very interesting too, almost as if someone deliberately filled it up but later became its own garden. Thanks for sharing.
