The lost Catskill Mountain House near Palenville, New York opened in 1824. Famed for its panoramic views of the Hudson River Valley, the resort was a popular destination that three US Presidents even visited. The hotel would decline near the end of the 19th century as wealthy patrons chose new destinations. By 1962, New York State had acquired the property and one year later would burn down the abandoned remains of the Catskill Mountain House in accordance with management policies to keep the Catskills “forever wild.”
