DUZZIT...really work? look good? taste yummy?
See how she DUZZIT and more!
It was constructed in 1894 for William O Wyckoff who was a official court stenographer of the Supreme Court for the 6th Judicial District of the State and held the position for sixteen consecutive years. He then started marketing the remmington typewriter and desinged the very keyboard layout we use today know as the QWERTY.. Anyways back to the villa... He died there 11th July 1895.. His two sons Clarene and Edward inherited the villa enjoyed it until the mid to late 1920's when it was sold to GE electric who planned on knocking down the Villa and building a company resort on the island.. They started demolition and let people come in and take anything they wanted from windows to floorboards.. Then ww2 stepped in and destruction ceased and thats how it got to what it is today. The structure itself is sound as it was built on the bedrock and construction of homes back in those days was alot better than our standards today, most damage is cosmetic but it would cost millions to restore, Maybe if peoples greed for money didn't get in the way the owners william millar and his brother would donate it to the thousand islands land trust so it can be restored to it's former glory... I would love to see this place but unfortunatley i live on the other side of the world and by the time i get there it will more than likely be gone... I've been researching this place and still search atleast once a week to see if it has been bought but still no such luck which is ashame seems it was there before both boldt castle and "the towers" aka singer castle, Boldt castle was taken over by the land trust and restored so why can;t the same happen to the grand villa
Thanks for your comment! Good info you provided. It really is sad to see that beautiful piece of history in ruins, though it does have its own kind of "creepy" beauty even now.
Yes it does. I have pictures of it hanging in my own home, I've read everything I can on it. Sadly I don't have the kind of money this home needs.
