Comments from visitors:
Property owned by the Manos family.
Joy Griswold Wisner writes "This house was built by Jonathan Webb in the mid 1800's. One of his children was Daniel Webb who married Lucinda Coon, who had a daughter named Mary Alice Webb who married Augustus D. Griswold and is my great grandmother. She was a school teacher and taught in the old schoolhouse on the corner of schoolhouse road. It is a very interesting study. Jonathon raised many horses on the 400 acres that he owned there and sold one team for $1200 (a lot of money back then) and they were taken to France where the story is that they were used by Luis Napoleon. Fun to know."

The foundations after the barn was burned:
Foundations of old barn that was burned down.
The fire was so hot that the remaining limestone of the foundation is brittle and breaks/crumbles easily.

"Chucky and Shirley Goutremont previously owned this farm, as well as a saw mill there.  Before the Goutermont's owned it it used to belong to a Harold (Jeff) and Irene Lidster from the 1940's until they sold it to the Goutremont's....it was a very big working farm."

Anonymous poster writes that this has burned down and "There is only a cement foundation and some tin scraps left now." and "The fire is reportedly suspicious".

"we purchased this farm in Nov. 2008 and have put a new roof on the main barn in the pic as well as clean-up/remove the old junk trailers...repainted and repaired all of the salvageable out-buildings. the house [not the original] has been remodeled, re-roofed and re-sided. we hope our efforts will help to restore this beautiful old farm to some of it's former beauty."

Jack S. writes: "At one time a small store. The "original quickstop" in the township of Croghan. Beer, soft drink, bread, milk, cigarettes, and gas. If you had a second a story."
CC writes: "I recall there was once a small old fashioned gas station next to this building- it looked to be packed full of items for sale. Believe the Watertown Times once did an article on it that included a picture with maybe an old wooden phone on the wall. Mr. Schwendy ran it and he lived in a big old house out back, it has since burned. Mr. Schwendy had a big old truck that he drove to Croghan and parked next next to the Croghan fire hall, (we called it the milk station) there he waited for all the farmers to bring him their station cans full of milk- each with the farmers 'identification' painted on it. (oldest cans had floppy handles, newer ones had the others) My dad would back his truck up to the back of Mr. Schwendy's and then they would unload and Mr. Schwendy would return us the clean empty ones. He then took the full ones to the Dairylea milk plant. I seem to recall he may have piled them 2 cans high when production was high just to get them all in. The trucks seemed so high and yet my father and the other men could swing a full station can of milk up onto them with just one hand like it weighed nothing! I think Dad called him "Fronts" Schwendy and we stopped a few times at his little store for candy bars and soda. I was still pretty young when the farmers including my dad were required to build new milk houses for bulk tanks and then the milk trucks of today would come and pick up our milk. That ended the social time the farmers had enjoyed together in those mornings at the 'milk station'."
Jack S. writes: "Francis (Fronce) Schwendy hauled the milk from the closed Dairylee plant in Croghan where the fire hall is now to Castorland until that Dairylee plant closed."

Updated photos from Scannerman 12/12/12, he tells us that it looks like it is being used for storage, that the front side walk can still be seen and to note the cat in the doorway:
