At best the buildings would be from after 1890.
They got a Post Office in 1898.
The buildings in the upper picture are probably from the early 1910-1920 time frame.

Thank you!

I LOVE the old hotel building and am very happy the building still has the sign bearing the name of the hotel!

Beacon NY has a bunch of abandoned factories hidden away in out-of-the-way places. This abandoned hat factory (Tioronda Hat Works, est 1879) is along the banks of the Fishkill Creek just across the road from Madam Brett Park. There is a waterfall slightly above the factory where it is possible that a waterwheel was used for power. The factory is surrounded by chain link fence, unfortunately, with dozens of no trespassing signs posted. That (and the fact that this is way off any beaten track) apparently has not stopped local youth from having beer parties in the vicinity. There are the remains of a bridge over Fishkill Creek (South Street) next to the factory, but it is fenced off and not safely passable.

Who knew that Beacon was once the second largest hat manufacturing location in the US -- with about 50 factories in the city at one time (but no longer)?

It's surprising that all of the things are still hanging on the front of the building

That's what I thought too. The town is also mostly abandoned, and what is left of the town is way the heck out in far western Nebraska. Not many people drive through, and since there is almost nowhere to stop it could explain why it lies untouched since they shuttered it. You could google map Broadwater and google drive down the main street there to see if it is still there. Pic taken in 2017 on my way to the total eclipse. I've got another literally across the street of a multi-colored abandined hotel that's pretty cool. I'll post that one soon.

And that sunlight hasn't destroyed the curtains in the door. It'll do that after years.

I like the building, I like the NAME of the building, and I like everything hanging on the building!

I also like the light fixtures hanging in the windows!!

Yes our southern states have a big problem with that when daylight saving comes in each summer. That extra hour of sunlight fades them so much faster!

It looks ancient and abandoned, but the glass is intact and clean. As are the light fittings and the rain water guttering.

Is it really abandoned?


My ambition for a good while is to grow old disgracefully. So far my wife tells me that I am doing really well!
