About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Maplewood = Maplehurst?

I couldn't find anything under the name "Maplewood Lodge" in Smithville Flats, but did find this under "Maplehurst" in Smithville Flats. Probably one in the same.

A possibility (this building was moved, so it is seen from a different aspect than the Shorpy photo. From a 2008 Word doc found online, date 5/14/08 3rd Draft by M. Auwarter:

Maplehurst – moved in 1999 to its present location on the northern edge of Smithville Flats at the junction of Routes 41 and 220. A 3 story Victorian house built in the 1870’s. In the early 1900’s it became “Maplehurst Lodge” a hunter’s delight specializing in the sport of hunting partridge, woodcock, squirrel, grouse, rabbit and fox., heavily advertised in the NYC area. It was formerly located across the street from today’s Community Center and has been vacant for many years.

Can't Git a Man With a Gun

That man with the gun and hunting dogs was George Finnigan. I wonder if he lived in that magnificent, stately home.

Maplewood Lodge +112

Could this be it? If one goes a bit further south, the view opens up to reveal a cupola-like structure atop the building.
