Hudson Valley Musing


Stunning Gate House|Speechless Sunday

This Stunning Gatehouse is the Ward Manor located on the Bard Campus just down the road from the Fisher Center.  On this campus you will find very old structure, and then ultra modern ones.

I have always gone by the Ward Manor Gatehouse during the day, so it was nice to get a shot when there were lights on just after sunset.

Good morning Jennifer -

WOW.... The Ward Manor Gatehouse is eye catching!  It reminds me of an olden day castle.  Very different that what we are use to seeing in the Southwest. 

A huge congrats on reaching and passing the 1,000,000 points!  I can't imagine all the time and effort it took to reach that goal.

Great picture...wonder if it was as hard building it as it was earning 1,000,000 AR points?

Jennifer if the gatekeeper lived like that, I can't even begin to imagine how the owner of the estate lived.

Debbie thank you.   I think a yellow jacket wanted to congratulate me too.  I now have a sore left hand.  :)

John to think it is close to the ultra modern Fisher Center.

Mike I don't have that answer.  I can tell you I had fun along the way, made friends picked up clients etc, so it was worth it.

Patricia I was attracted to this gatehouse because I love the old architecture

George this building  served many purposes, it was a building used during my daughter's wedding reception. 

Tatyana glad you have appreciation for such a structure.


Thank you all now I am off to make my next million :)
