Where

This lost historic site in Hoosick Falls, New York was the mansion of Walter Abbot Wood. Wood was a successful businessman and politician who manufactured plows and agricultural equipment. He built his mansion on a hill overlooking Main Street in 1873. In 1892, Wood died of influenza and his son Walter, Jr. took over the mansion before giving it to the village. Years later, the village would build a high school next to the mansion, but by 1967, the school board voted to demolish the high school and save the Wood mansion. Sadly, that plan did not materialize and both the high school and historic Wood Mansion were demolished. Today, the Hoosick Housing Authority stands on the site of the old Wood Mansion.
