Also see . . . . “Mount Gulian stood on its hill above the Hudson River for 200 years. But an arsonist’s fire destroyed it in 1931. Family members, household staff and neighbors rescued furniture, paintings, and silver from the home. The ruin, with just the stonework remaining, was left to the mercy of the woods for thirty-five years. In 1966, Bache Bleecker, a Verplanck descendant and his wife Connie founded the Mount Gulian Society for the purpose of reconstructing the homestead.” (Submitted on November 7, 2010.)
