Cape Elizabeth, Maine
Abandoned Italianate architecture on the coast of Maine.
Designed by noted architect Charles A. Alexander for local lumberman John Goddard, the property was later acquired by the army for housing NCOs and their families.
The local authorities purchased the abandoned structure in the early 1960s, but as the decay of the interior was already well underway, a controlled fire was conducted in the 1980s to remove dangerous debris. The remaining shell is still beautiful, a bit creepy, and is an excellent place for photography.
Viewing is accessible from the surrounding public trails, though please note that the mansion is fenced off for public safety.
Know Before You Go
The drive to the mansion is fenced off, but there is parking and foot paths leading to the mansion from the nearby Fort Williams Park.
