Old farm on Gardner Road, between Eagle Factory Road and West Road, outside of Lowville.
Update 9/1/13 - a visitor to the OABONNY Facebook page says that part of the house has collapsed, and the Amish are tearing down the barn for the wood.
After Glenn M. sent me some photos of an interesting house on Rector Road I went searching for it but could not find it until someone ('Krockett') recognized the photos (below) which were submitted by Glenn M.  'Krockett' wrote that this house is on the Gardner Road; not the Rector Road.  I then was able to find the farm and house and took more photos (the following photo and pano) of this great old structure.
I then realized that I had previously taken a photo of this farm back in late 2005 (the above photo).  As you can see if you compare the above photo with the following ones - this grand old house and barn have started deteriorating quickly, especially the roof on part of the house.

lildevil01 says that this farm used to be owned by the Millers.

From comac1103 (via Flickr.com): "What a great photo stream of old buildings and places. I looked at your web site and signed the guest book. Great job on all these photos and thank you for the fave on my photo."
From roadlsstrvld (via Flickr.com): "I am also a lover of old barns and homes, and think it is truly sad when I see such beautiful buildings abandoned or neglected. I can easily imagine the history that they hold... "
On 8/28/12 Katt writes "How sad that this wonderful old property just continues to fall in ruined. I would so love to save it."
On 10/19/13 ben miller writes "I lived in that house on the garner road my grandmother owned it befor she sold it to alan mareit or how ever you spell it its a really nice old house but it has seen better days."

Christopher Champion-Fernandes writes: "I have an update about the house on Gardner Rd that has the huge barn in the back. It's a Victorian style farmhouse that is owned by Tom Marriott. The house will have a second life as it is to be dismantled and restored in Champion, NY. Looks like this will happen sometime next year.
The barn will also be dismantled and it's future use unknown at this point but at least this treasure will be saved."
Scannerman submitted a few updated (9/11/10) pictures and writes: "Here are some more pix of the farm on Gardner Road literally in the shadow of two massive wind turbines."

This photo and the next one were originally incorrectly identified as being on the Rector Road.  Thanks to 'Krockett' for searching and finding the correct location of this house (and thanks to Glenn M. for these two photos).

From andre.govia (via Flickr.com): "Wow this is like a horror set 10/10 www.missionabandoned.com"
Arabelle writes "Just think how beautiful this two story bay window was in its time. The lady of the house would have been very proud of it.
 I just found your site, and it is great, I am enjoying it very much.
 As to New York state, my ancestors moved there while there were still Indians about. My ancestor received 200 acres near Unadilla, as a bounty for his service in the Revolutionary War."

A visitor says "Seemed to be unused and abandoned but with house in use nearby".  Mason M. says he thinks that it was once owned by the Shells.

From oldpartsman1 (via Flickr.com): "nice."
Vinton writes "This barn was owned by Robert (Bob) Staplin and his wife Murial. It has looked very much the same since it was in operation when I lived nearby as a young lad 60 years ago. I passed by it for many years going to the one room school a bit further up the road."
On 9/1/13 Eric writes "I have photos of this house which in recent months part of it has since collapsed, but the majority is still standing. I believe the Amish are tearing down the barn for the wood and am not sure if they will be doing the same for the house. Does anyone know who owned this house?"

Bobby writes: "This house was last inhabited by Mr. Warner (John, I think) and before that by the Sanford family. The house may look spooky now, but was quite nice earlier. It also had a large barn that has since fallen down. It was the last school bus stop on the Chaumont Road during the late 60s/early 70s."

Great old abandoned farmhouse on French Creek Road, Clayton

It was built around 1880 and at one time was a bed and breakfast owned by the Comins family

How sad that this has burned and only the chimney stands. Many great family memories are in this land and will always be there. There was a large family that lived in this home."
