CATALPA HOUSE

Catalpa House is an 1806 historic gem in Rensselaerville, NY. The whole town of Rensselaerville is a perfectly preserved 1800s village popular with artists, journalist, photographers and chefs. 

Catalpa House even has its own website, blog and Facebook Page. For sale, the house is listed as a spacious country home to buy or convert it into a bed and breakfast.

The Catalpa House history page says: The house was built by Franklin Frisbee of Brandford, Connecticut to be a store, ballroom, tavern, office and home to the Frisbee family. It was in the 1880s that the porch and gingerbread were added to the home. In 1922, Edith Lounsbury turned it into a boarding house and added more rooms. She was famous for serving large Sunday chicken dinners throughout the downstairs rooms until she closed in 1974. After that, it was a popular bed and breakfast until 2012 when it became a private residence.
