Halcyon Hall/Bennett College, Millbrook, New york

I took these pictures in 2010 when the building was still in a good enough condition for  going inside and carefully walk around. The roof was in pretty bad condition even by than and you can see the sky through the openings . Lots of the floor boards collapsing to the next level, so you  had to be extremely careful where you stepped. My understanding is that it is scheduled for demolition this year. One more of a once beautiful buildings will be gone forever.

    If only someone had kept the roof in a good state of repair this majestic school would have been salvageable. It would have made a perfect McMenamin’s type of hotel.
