Old Gothic Revival farmhouse in the middle of nowhere. The property is fairly remote with no close neighbors. Has photogenic features including a spiral staircase, bay windows and parlor doors. Rather large house with many rooms, most containing old nasty furniture. Some of the siding has been stripped from the rear and one side of the house. In the rear is a barn which has partially collapsed.

    Not much history known unfortunately. It has been abandoned for decades. It was built by Charles Crittenden who also built the nearby Castle Hill house in 1878. This house was constructed around the same time. On December 22, 2015, an arson fire burned it to the ground.

     Future Plans
    Owned by a local family. They are slowly making an attempt to restore the house. In the past few years or so, they have put a new roof on it and the west side of the house was freshly painted. Hopefully they will be successful.

    Burned to the ground 12/22/2015.
