The Sheffield estate was built during the time when Saugerties, NY reaped the fruits of the Industrial Revolution. Designed by Alfred H. Thorpe, who in partnership with Edward Potter designed the Mark Twain house in Hartford. The Victorian Gothic house represented a fashion prominent in the latter half of the 19th century. Today it stands as a reminder of this key period in the town's history and it's location makes it an important gateway and landmark for the village.

      Saving Saugerties' architectural history is to the benefit of the community and to generation s to come. Let's take make a mistake as they did in Kingston, tearing down the beautiful old Post Office to make room for a fast food shop. Save Clovea.

      Better to go with what we know. Who knows what would follow. I occupy space in Saugerties Twp and am subjected to enough visual junk.
