Briarcliff Lodge Site - 2007 

North end of the Lodge, foundation.
Photographs taken September 21 2007.

    For the first time in four years, I set foot on the spot where Briarcliff Lodge once stood. I did not realize this fact until I got home later that day, but the date was September 21, 2007 - four years and a day exactly from when Briarcliff Lodge burned. What had been a pile of rubble after the building was demolished is now an overgrown field - higher in parts perhaps where the foundation is buried, while a few masonry walls are exposed here and there. Walking back down the "Chapel Steps" toward the site of the gymnasium which doubled as chapel for The King's College, we noticed something peculiar and distinctly familiar - the small of abandoned building, still lingering in the air four years after the great Briarcliff Lodge vanished.

Looking south.

West wing (men's dorm) foundation.

Looking north, this photograph was taken roughly by the north end of the original 1902 central section of the Lodge.
