Before the Wrecking Ball This School for Girls in Millbrook, NY Looked Like a Ghost Town
As I write this article about the abandoned Bennett School for Girls in Millbrook, NY, demolition work has begun to clear the ruins to make way for a park that will include a nearby restored community center, according to the Times Union.
The last building to be taken down was Halycon Hall. Originally built as a luxury hotel, the building became home to Bennett College in 1907 after the hotel failed to catch on. The following photo gallery shows the destruction and final chapter of this historic school for girls in Millbrook, New, only 50 minutes from Danbury.
