The remains of the old mill outside of Herrings.  The brush around it seems to have been cleared and brand new fence put up around it.

Henry P. writes "A great sadness. Saint Regis and then Champion Papers employed over 800 people, supported towns, schools, hospitals, paid taxes and were good corporate citizens. I know because for many years I ran the Newton Falls Paper Company- a neighbor. Those were the days when papermaking was an important facet to lives in the north country, using native resources and the wonderful working ability of north country people."

Comments from visitors:
Hope writes that she talked to Gary Rhodes, a local genealogist who owns the Cyrus Bates House, and he said the name he knows this house by is the Phillips Home, a Sears & Roebuck Kit house."  She also has found that he 1864 map shows as the home of O. Potter."
From spookyfoto (via Flickr.com): "Fabulous find and shot. I love the boarded up windows! It kind of makes you wonder why all but one is boarded up, maybe that one is where the ghost sits and looks out at you! LOL"
From _KEITH_MNTYA (via Flickr.com): "Oh my god, this is a scary house... I would NEVER go in there for a night."
From dags: "This is really spooky. Nice foto."
Flickr.com): "How melancholy; I love it."
Flickr.com): "Rather Stephen King-ish! Yikes!"
From Kathy Mereand (via Flickr.com): "A beautiful old house a reflection of someone's pride in workmanship in a far distant past. How many of our modern houses will reflect this beauty if they even survive this long."
Rob writes: "oh MAN I would LOVE to buy one of these old houses and renovate it into a B&B these stately old homes just have a feel, something ineffable, something that just cant be duplicated in a new structure, maybe it's the spirits, maybe it's just the weathering, I don't know but I LOVE them!"
Lori T. writes "Amazing house! Would love to see the inside. As for being a Sears Kit house, Sears didn't start marketing kit homes until 1908 and this house appears to be much older."
Beverly (via Facebook) writes "We were in Henderson last night and saw this place. Amazing. Driving past, even the roof line appeared straight and in good shape. I bet it was a beauty in its day!!"
Nadeem writes "I have seen this picture I feel so relief that time, like an some where heaven really, Nice Picture :)"
From Bella Luna Creative  (via Flickr.com): "Amazing!"
From Rodney Harvey (via Flickr.com): "Incredible house...which it was several states closer!"
From Cody Kapcsos (via Flickr.com): "This one is begging to be painted up!! Man think of all the bright colours you could add to this beaut!"
On 3/3113 Mellisa writes "I was born and raised in upstate NY and our family friends owned/rented this home.  We would visit every weekend and go to the beach. There used to be a wrap around porch. The inside was beautiful and had a large spiral staircase and a couple 'hidden hideouts' as we called them. I would love to know the history of this house that we all cal'ed our 'big brown house.'"
On 4/30 madair writes "What a shame this house is just sitting there and falling apart. Live right around the corner from it and my husband and I restore houses so we cringe everytime we see it. The guy just won't sell it."

On 8/17/12 Kasey Coff writes "Love the photo from this side - the angled windows obviously run along the stairs. I wonder what the layout was inside? Anyone know if there are any original pictures of the house in its heyday? The wooden siding is beautiful.
p.s. Can't believe the snow hasn't pulled it down!"
On 4/30/13 Jojo writes "I love this building! Would be interested to see the inside!"

Stacey writes "A fun project.  Wow, what a fun restoration project that would be. It would be fun to look inside for queen ann furniture, antique bitters or liquor bottles, ect. In good condition these items will bring a premium. Does anyone know if it's empty inside? Metal detecting there would be great fun."
fishfamily writes "Every summer when our family comes to the Harbor, we drive by this SPOOKY old house and ponder the stories... Before it was boarded up, for years there was a faded brown artificial Christmas tree in the lower window, which made us wonder about why the place was abandoned seemingly so abruptly...always wondered what else was inside - perhaps a mummy in a rocking chair?...."

From comac1103 (via Flickr.com): "Now this is a nice shot, sad that such a grand building in such a sad condition but a wonderful photo!"
Don writes: "I believe that after being a church this was also a Masonic Lodge. It was purchased in the '80's by a private individual."
