Hey’s Cottage

In my piece about Fall Brook Point, I noted that patent attorney George W. Hey (1849-1906) of Hey & Parsons in Syracuse was the man who had the main cottage built, and the architect was Asa Lanfear Merrick (1848-1922), of Kirby & Merrick in Syracuse. But I wasn’t able to find a picture of the cottage during Hey’s brief time there, 1890-1894. Until today.

George Hey CottageThanks to a generous donation to the Skaneateles Historical Society of A Souvenir of Skaneateles Lake and its Shores, published by photographer Henry D. Rumsey (1824-1903) in Homer, N.Y., circa 1892, here is “Hey’s Cottage.”
