Going, going, gone? Bennett College land sold to local groups


The Poughkeepsie Journal is reporting that two local groups – the Millbrook Tribute Garden Foundation and Thorndale Farm LLC, representatives of the prominent Thorne family – have purchased the eight parcels comprising the Bennett College campus. The amount paid for the parcels has not been disclosed. The article states that the groups  plan to demolish Halcyon Hall – the iconic 1893 edifice that is a jewel in the crown to Hudson Valley abandonment aficionados but an eyesore to the community. Early discussions suggest the grounds will be incorporated into a park once existing structures are removed. AHV will keep readers apprised of developments as they happen. Please write to us if you hear of any news concerning development and/or demolition plans. Read more here
