So clearly we weren't the only people to notice the condition of Ebo Hill.
In the week since we posted our gallery of the historic property, which is clearly falling apart, we've received a steady flow of comments and emails about the site.
One local exterminator wants to volunteer to remove the bee colony that has taken over one of the house's columns.
Another local told Patch his plan had he won MegaMillions a little more than a week ago started with buying and renovating the stately manor.
We've even heard from people who had lived nearby who wanted to share their memories on better times for the estate.
And here are a few of the comments we received on the site. Got an opinion of your own? Weigh in below:
The town should restore it and turn it into a catering hall. They would be able to rent it out for meetings, galas, weddings. Its a beautiful building to be wasted.
I have always found this building to be a diamond in the rough. It would be great to see it restored. For the past 5 years or so, my family has been eying it to see if it ever goes on sale. As for the current owners, I have on occasion seen a woman mowing the lawn - but that is the only action I have seen on the property.
I have always thought that the town could use an interactive children's museum. We have an art museum in Stony Brook, performing arts, acoustic long Island, wonderful parks, beaches, general store,but no children's museum. I think it would be a wonderful addition to our town.
I too would like to see this house saved! Every time I drive past makes me wonder who owns this, and what a shame to see it like this. Smithtown has so much History, and I feel like it's all being overlooked!
