About the Image

The abandoned MacNaughton Cottage in the Tahawus Ghost Town, the Adirondacks, New York.

It was constructed in 1834 to house the manager and the visiting owners of the Adirondack Iron and Steel Works who then owned the property. From 1876 until 1947 the property was leased to hunting clubs, primarily the Tahawus Club. The small building to the side of the cottage was the McIntyre Bank - the first chartered bank in the Adirondacks.

In 1901, then-Vice President Theodore Roosevelt was vacationing at the house when President McKinley was shot in Buffalo. Travelling along the back roads of the Adirondacks to the North Creek railroad station, it was at the station that Roosevelt received a telegram informing him that President McKinley had died of his injuries. As a result, Roosevelt became the USA's 26th president.
