THE DANA ESTATE

 

 

 

 

 

WAS A HUGE VICTORIAN HOME KNOWN AS
"MOSS LOTS"

 

 

LOCATED ON FORGE RIVER JUST NORTH OF THE THE FLOYD ESTATE . IT WAS CONSTRUCTED BY KATHERINE FLOYD DANA AND USED BY THE FAMILY UP THROUGH THE EARLY 1960's

 

 

Mrs Eleanor Roosevelt spent three weeks here in the late 1930's. At one point there was talk of using the property to build William Floyd School on it. The Dana's socialised and hunted with the Knapp's. Their much larger home, suffered the same fate as the Knapp's did, first it was vandalised and eventually torched.
