Hoyt Mansion, also known as Hoyt House or The Point, was built in 1855. It was almost demolished to build a public swimming pool, but its historic status saved it. Despite that fact, no plans have materialized to use the building, and it is now abandoned. Reports say the belonged to an eccentric family who used underground means to enter the home and all eventually committed suicide. It stands between the Mills Mansion and the Vanderbilt Mansion.

    • I never heard anything about the people who lived there, that I remember… I would be interested in knowing because I’ve lived here in Hyde park all my life.

  1. I have worked alone in the house several times over the past 10 years and always felt like there was someone there other than myself. I would rush my work and sometimes just go outside to get a break from that feeling. I have been told that several of the staff have seen a ghost in the maintenance building that is located on the property.
