Nice shots Jim, where the heck is it located?
Looks like the start of what could be a beautiful home.

Actually I thinkit's an old boat house in a County Park along Ellicott Creek and the Erie Canal. WhenI was a kid it was enclosed, but I think some years ago there was a fire that took out the wooden roof.

These are wonderful shots. I've always been fascinated by abandoned buildings: it always seems sad that someone went to a lot of effort and spent a lot of money building something, and now many years later, it's abandoned. The stone portion of the old boat house looks like it's still in pretty good condition.

I don't know that it's completely abandoned, maybe just left as is and kept up around the property. The park is still busy all the time and this building is easily seen from the other side as you drive on Ellicott Creek Road, which is a busy street. I suspect that someday if the town decides to put some money into it that this building could be renovated into something useful again. Who knows. Nice series Jim.
