What a beautiful ruin - it must have been really spectacular in its time. It's an excellent photo - and many thanks for the web link too.

Thanks for the opportunity to do a little research. The mansion was bought by Fort Williams in 1900. There were bids to salvage it in 1975 but no takers. http://www.capeelizabeth.com/fort/history.html

Thanks for the comment Dud,I'm glad you enjoyed it.When the army built fort Williams,this building was used for the officers quarters.I believe it was bought with the land for the fort.
