    One of these days, I stop and try to both get more pictures and investigate as it has some interesting architectural features. I am thinking that, at one time, it may have had a big porch that was partially removed and the gazebo enclosed, which now has stained-glass windows. Fortunately, some of these old places do get restored. Once such place is in Clinton, MA, shown below.

    I stopped there earlier to take pictures (couldn't get the bike into the pic) and was met by a fellow who said he was the caretaker. I couldn't get much out of him about the history of the place but he did show me around on the first floor (he said no pictures). The ornate woodwork was fantastic (i.e., the stuff of the very wealthy). Given that the park right across the street was given to the town by one of the Bigelow (of carpet fame) brothers, I am wondering if this wasn't his or his descendant's house at one time.

    EDIT UPDATE: I just learned that the Clinton Manse had previously been a home for the aged (which explains the fire escapes) and, before that, film star Agnes Morehead may have lived there as a child.

    So many interesting places to investigate, so little time!

    Abandoned many years ago but still standing, building 93 of the NY State psychiatric hospital in Kings Park, NY:

    I have no idea what the age is, since the hospital operated from 1885 to 1996, but if I had to guess I'd say most of the building was done in the 30's. Late 2012 the government ordered the buildings to be demolished but so far most of them are still standing.

    Old Train garage? Found next to a barely active railway station from 1881. The round thingy on the wall says 1881 also.

    Great pic and I would love to know the history of that and the engines, if any, that were in it. It does look like a mini-roundhouse.

    Had a full train round house near me that they tore down to build a Wal-mart ... was very sickening.

    Pictured is Roseland Cottate in Woodstock CT, a gothic revival built in 1846 that hosted such historical personalities as U.S. Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, Benjamin Harrison, John Fremont and others. The place is well-preserved, has a bowling alley in the barn and had a snooty caretaker that wouldn't let us take picture of the bikes up close to the house.

    (Apologies if previously pictured)

    This is a great ride through the Fraser Canyon in Southern British Columbia. You can bypass the Trans Canada a bit. It takes twice as long but its worth it. There's a few old homesteads built shortly after the gold rush. Lots of history and great riding.
