Blauvelt, New York Community News
My sister & I are still curious about two huge old houses that once stood just east of the railroad tracks behind St. Catharines church. One was burned to the ground in the early sixties by the fire department, for practice, and most of the spectators came down with poison ivy or sumac. The other, a little north of the one behind the church, was still standing when I was drafted in 1966. Both houses were on large land tracks and their build was similar to the Esposito's market structure. Both were abandoned for years, and I don't recall anyone who knew how they came to be abandoned, or who the previous owners were(or the current landowners).In the late fifties a frozen body was found in the more northern house, and all of us kid explorers were banned from entering the property. While visiting the area a couple years ago, I drove along Western Highway and tried to enter an access road near the houses location. It was just dark, so I couldn't tell if the house still stood; and I thought I saw someone walking in the woods with a rifle, so I retreated. The area still looks as undeveloped as it always had- still puzzling after all these years! If anyone can enlighten us, we'd be delighted.
Thanks, Tom Davis
